Process modeling is not as difficult as you might think. Just imagine the steps you need to do to achieve a task and write them down. That’s it!

A good starting point to learn process modeling is cooking recipes. Visualizing them as process models is a good way to understand how process modeling works.

As we at IDS Scheer are based in the German region called Saarland, I like to present a typical regional menu to you.

“Eating is a bit of joy in the Saarland and a feast for the senses”, so the tourist office of Saarland.

We people of Saarland have actually a simple cuisine, which varies from a hotpot to the meat of home slaughtering. And for all that, there exists typical menus of Saarland like:

  • Dibbelabbes ( cracker cake of potatoes)
  • Schales (potato pancake)
  • Or also Hoorische (potato dumpling) and more.

And what would the Saarland be without the “Schwenker”? A “Schwenker” is a marinated pork neck roast, which is consumed with enthusiasm by the people of Saarland on one of the numerous folk festivals. Especially when spring begins, the grill season starts all over Saarland. A barbecue in Saarland without a „Schwenker”, that is inconceivable!

By the way, not only the steak is called “Schwenker” but also the cook.

Therefore, let´s start.

As side dishes, you can offer potato salad, salad of tomatoes, leaf salad, baked potato, baguette etc.

You see, process modeling is very easy!

In my next post, I am going to show you how preparing “Mehlknepp” could be modeled. So long, have fun exploring other recipes.

I think, there is one mistake: 

"2 kg pork neck roast". . That is just enough for one person :-)

Awesome to see my 2nd best grill meal modeled!

However, the best grill meat is Picanha, the most popular special grilled steak from Brasil.

And since AEX 2.0 supports now the import of graphics my model I will post my recipe for Picanha soon here and of course looking very brazilian. ;-)

Um abraço
