Process Execution

Process execution happens when the target process is executed, or realized, becoming the actual process. When processes are executed, process mining helps generate data that is important for process controlling. Process execution is part of the process management life cycle and takes place after process implementation.

What is process execution?

Process execution begins as soon as employees begin to carry out a process in their day-to-day business. Using process documentation, instructions can be created to help employees execute a process. These instructions describe the process flow in more detail than the process mode. After a process is executed, measure key figures continuously to track performance. However, the analysis of these key figures does not take place until the next phase: process controlling. Until the process controlling phase, short-term challenges can be solved with ad hoc solutions. Any ad hoc changes to the process should be recorded in the process documentation. However, if too many challenges require ad hoc solutions the process should go through the optimization process again.

The steps for process execution are as follows:

1. Carry out the process.

2. Measure and document key figures.

3. Solve challenges on an ad hoc basis.

4. Document all challenges and solutions in the process documentation.
