Model Types and Supported Application Areas

This section provides an overview of the model types which are defined in the ADONIS BPMS Application Library and their intended use.

Products#

Product Model

In a Product Model an overview of products and product components can be created. Product Models can be arranged hierarchically using subordinated models to e.g. illustrate the detailed structure of a product.

Processes#

Process Landscape

Process Landscapes are used to model a process landscape, an overview of business processes or other Process Landscapes. Therefore a Process Landscape can be seen as a navigation help and entry point into the hierarchy of your business processes.

Business Process Diagram

The Business Process Diagram allows to model business processes.

Conversation Diagram

The Conversation Diagram in ADONIS allows an abstracted view of the communication between different participants.

Choreography Diagram

The Choreography Diagram in ADONIS allows mapping message exchanges between different participants, typically in the context of B2B scenarios.

Organisation#

Working Environment Model

Working Environment Models describe the structure of an organisation (organisation chart). Working Environment Models can be arranged hierarchically using subordinated models to e.g. illustrate the detailed structure of a working environment.

Information Technology#

IT System Model

In an IT System Model an overview of IT system architecture can be created by modelling systems, applications and infrastructure elements. IT System Models can be arranged hierarchically using subordinated models to e.g. illustrate the detailed structure of an IT system.

Use Case Diagram

In Use Case Diagrams interactions between systems and involved parties are shown and described. Involved parties have requirements for the system in order to reach certain goals. These requirements lead to a number of interactions with the system. The system them performs a number of actions to fulfil the requests.

Document Model

Document Models contain documents (templates), which are utilised in processes (input, output to activities etc.). Document Models can be arranged hierarchically using subordinated models to e.g. illustrate the detailed structure of documents.

Data Model

The Data Model provides an easy way to define and describe data entities and their properties. It is particularly useful to define data objects in an enterprise in the context of defining what information is required and how it can be processed, to model so perceived data structure and define relationships between entities.

Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC)#

Control Pool

Control Pools describe the actions that have to be carried out to avoid or prevent the occurrence of risks which have been identified in processes. All controls which occur in processes are thus centrally collected and described.

Risk Pool

In a Risk Pool all risks that occur in processes are collected and described centrally. A risk is a potential danger that can lead to a delay, a malfunction or a complete failure of a process.

Control Objective Pool

The Control Objective Pool offers an opportunity to model, describe, assess and structure control objectives.

Analysis Model

The Analysis Model is used to save the results of views and graphical or tabular analyses as a model.
