Improving processes - change transitions

Cubicle - work place - process cell

BI life BI technology Data inventory In the transition of information the working cell is imaginary, when there is an human operator he is visible.

Two worlds to deal with in then information stream. The physical is too common, the cyber representative is the challenger.

THis chapter is partially fresh, partially converted. Topics are:
idef0 process design

Process work cell - input output.

The simplifacted basics of processing adds controls and mechansism of the flow input tot output.
Transforming Information.
IDEF0 is a method designed to model the decisions, actions, and activities of an organization or system. IDEF0 was derived from a well-established graphical language, the Structured Analysis and Design Technique (SADT).
In December 1993, the Computer Systems Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released IDEF0 as a standard for Function Modeling in FIPS Publication 183.
It is not a standard anymore. The basic concept of describing a cell transforming something like information is still valid.
The information flow limited to the main data object.
lean object data oriented
Following the main stream information going from supplier to customer is ignoring proces transforamations.

Several types of information:
Adding four quadrants of proces steps for each inforamtion transition process.
lean proces oriented
Quadrants defining transition type during processing. Acknowledging the data flow by the colored diagonal in-out partitions.

Four stages in the process, lean (pull): Note: A push approach only has I,II
dual feeling

Using tools and having some inventory.

Dependicies on other processes is adding more workcells but not all are core business processes. Maintaining needed tools is a requirement needed to get well planned.
Adding needed supplies additional data.
Every process is needing materials at the assembly / transition. When external dependency and/or external delivered the start of a process step must wait.
  1. ⚙ ⚖ The waiting time to be monitored in the pull request.
  2. IV As the request is seen in the transition the parts availability is checked.
  3. 🚧 IV When missing an ordering for delivery is done.
  4. III Vhen availale processing continues as maianstream flow.
The request for parts is remotely handled by going through a similar circle entering at quadrant IV delivery at quadrant II.
lean object data oriented Adding two lines for the needed addition communication.
Externally loosely coupled whereas in the same environment a direct connection gives the best response.

Adding the used tool as informations process.
lean proces oriented Every process is needing some tools at the assembly / transition.
Those tools are effecting the objects and have their own life cycle with their own information flows.
IOT 4.0

New types of information related to the used tool (iot 4.0):
Adding two additional communication lines between the tool information and product information.
👓 There is no segregation in the source origin of the information.
Information consumers on the prodcut flow will always get a consistent story.
dual feeling

Swim lanes - duality too detailed and missing details.

Change of responsibility is a possible threat when not clear or challenged by changes. The resistance to change is not easy clear investigated.
connecting points by goto's.
Modelling processes programs for new situations are always resulting in nice structured diagams. Of course nice as it is thought what is not reality.
proces objects swimlane
A very detailed flow with a scope with who is to do what kind of detailed action (swimmlane) is getting a lot of goto's.

When more exceptions are inluded this will become cumbersome like a spaghetti diagram. But a spaghetti diagram can help you if you want to reduce the distance traveled by either parts or people.

The exceptiions are not seen or even mentioned when seeing a value stream map. Those detail are left to the floor as long as the measured values are acceptable

A detailed planning and working proces map using sticky notes is a very complicated figure.
allaboutlean Christopher Roser - swimlanes
strcuturing flows.
spaghetti proces flow An old technical approach for strcuturing is known. s an ol EWD1308 "A case against the goto statement"

We did the only thing we could do under the circumstances, viz. to keep our design as simple and systematic as we could and to check that we had avoided all the mistakes we could think of. Eventually we learned that we had made mistakes we had not thought of, ..
Course Structured programming The disadvantages of unstructured spaghetti
Programming Logic and Design goto Programming Logic and Design
Simple question: Why don't we organize processes in the same structured way as was done wiht structured programming.


Full Process work cell circle.

The Full process circle is having dependencies on availability of inventory and the ability in using mechanisms - tools for transformations.
Excuting a single working cell process.
This in a timeline following the:
📚 Information, ==>> The Pull request
🎭 Communication ==>> Preparing needed supplies and tool configuration in a planned moment.
Technology ==>> Fullfiling the request in a Push.

This is about the value line (blue artifacts). There can be many inputs and many deliverables. Other processes like the life cycle of tooling are relevant, but those are requirements able to do the job.

proces circle objects

Information flows in the work cell process.
Limiting the view on the worker in a cell - cubicle, the question is what is expected as of some handling. The whole flow and values stream is not visible.
proces circle objects

In the values stream flow from input to output the activties are supported by tools and information. Several stages are possible seen.

Inventing change Transformations.

There are different views in a process. One is focussing on the processing activities another is focussing on the product, sub products with qualities. They are strong related, processes are changing products (input) into a new different products (output).
Controlling change Transformations as a flow.
🤔 This detailed process cell is giving an option to design information processing gettting aligned to a value stream approach.
The goal of producing parts into a an assembly getting defined products.

Two powers: data and processes
Recap: From the same process mining source as previous. ( wil van der aalst)

Questions on processes can be found in data
Processes are delivering data (events)
