Hello All,

I need guidance and tips to convert  EPCs into Swim Lane process maps (such as Visio) manually?

I am referring to a repository where the processes were detailed as EPC  diagrams, I need to recreate the process maps as swim lane in Visio.

The challenge is:

  1. The roles are not associate in EPCs. Even though, I am preparing the initial drafts and need not assign exact role at this time, I can keep place holders  -  but how do I bracket the tasks into lanes?
  2. I don't have access to ARIS license, the repository I am referring is only web based (backend is ARIS)  - so cant convert EPC to swimlane using a tool

Would really appreciate any suggestion 

Many Thanks!

Hello Sree!

Swim lanes can be organized in many ways. Typically, each lane would represent an Organization or Role, without this type of information there is no way to place steps in lanes. Sounds like you first need to gather the customer requirements (what they want the lanes to represent) and then gather the necessary information to fulfill those requirements.
