Creating a simple BPM Manual Process by Waslley Souza

clip_image001

A Manual Process in Oracle BPM Suite 12c is a process that the user starts through a Human Task.
In this post we will create a BPM Process to add employees through a Human Task and generate a XML file through File Adapter.
Download the sample application: BpmHelloWorldApp.zip.

Create a new BPM Application, name it as BpmHelloWorldApp and click Finish.
Right-click the project name and choose New > BPMN 2.0 Process.
In the BPMN 2.0 Process Wizard, choose Manual Process, name it as AddEmployee and click Finish.

Our BPM application was created.
Before we start to model our process, we need to create a new user.
Start the WebLogic Server, go to Console and create the hrofficer user.

  • Enterprise Maps

Process Data Definition by Red Maveriks

clip_image002Processes transform inputs (data) into outputs (data)

We have our BPMN process and if we only want to document our process, this is almost all the work we’ll need to do. However, Akino Fishing Co. wants to not only document, but also automate and execute the processes. For that, we need to define our process data.

A process governs data transformation

Process data refers to the entities that the process manipulates, or interacts with, during its life cycle. To put it simply, a process manipulates things. All these things must first be defined, so that the process does what it’s intended to do.

For our process, we’ll define the following data entities:

  • Request
  • Parking Space

Oracle BPM Composer allows you to define this in a fairly simple way. First, you create the data structure, that will specify what makes that “thing”. Let’s build an example to understand this better:

What makes a request? How is it defined? Think about it for 5 minutes…

5 Minutes

You should end up with something like this:

  • Requester – who made the request
  • Request date – when the request was made
  • Employee? – is the requester an employee?
  • Park date&time – when does the requester want to park
  • Fulfilled? – was the request fulfilled?
  • State – state of the request: open, closed, pending alternative

So, these set the characteristics, the structure, of our request.

Business Objects vs Data Objects

We define a request as being comprised of these 6 elements, by creating a Business Object. In the BPM process composer select the option Business Object, Read the complete article here.

Making the Business Case for BPM/SOA by Avio


Business Process Management (BPM) and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) provide enterprise-level IT environments the benefits of flexibility, versatility, and a relative ease-of-use that makes BPM attractive to business managers and SOA to IT executives.
BPM has become the go-to solution for optimizing a wide range of business processes and improving an organization’s efficiency and agility. BPM’s popularity is due in large part to the way it can seamlessly integrate a variety of human, document, and system-based processes to streamline and simplify the enterprise ecosystem and make businesses more agile, responsive, and competitive. But what makes it especially attractive is the capability it provides non-technical employees to alter software processes and change rules without having to delve into coding.
SOA , on the other hand, provides organizational flexibility much like BPM, but on a fundamental infrastructure level. Simply put, it lowers software development and management costs by providing the ability to create reusable software modules. SOA, by its very nature, enables simple services to be combined to make more complex ones with increased functionality, while speeding development and time-to-implementation.
Given their similarities, it stands to reason that if BPM and SOA are valuable on their own, they’re even more valuable together. However, it can be a hard sell because the two methodologies seem, on the surface, to be somewhat redundant and integration (along with the cost) unnecessary.

Here are some ideas for making a solid business case for BPM/SOA:

  • Implementing a BPM/SOA solution balances the need to fulfill strategic business goals with the tactical reality of working within the constraints of limited IT resources. BPM/SOA provides one solution for both challenges.
  • Process optimization benefits the entire enterprise. An integrated BPM/SOA IT environment can increase overall productivity, IT responsiveness, and the effective utilization of technological and human resources.
  • Integrated BPM/SOA increases IT agility, making the enterprise more responsive to rapid market changes and technological evolution. Read the complete article here.
