In this video, you create a model of type Event-driven Process Chain (EPC).
To open the database and the folder where you want to save the model click on the arrows of the database. Now you can create a model of type EPC.
When you have created the model it is displayed on a separate tab and you can start modeling. You collapse the model header to get more space for your model. The grid is not needed because you use Smart Modeling and Guided Modeling. Smart Modeling automatically places the objects in the default distance. And Guided Modeling helps you with lines when you drag and drop objects in the modeling area. You deactivate the grid.
The default distance for Smart Modeling is a setting of the layout options. You set 20 as horizontal and keep 10 as vertical distance.
You create the control flow, that is, events as specific states, and functions as activities that change the states. Now you place satellite objects. In contrast to structurally relevant objects, such as events and functions, satellites are not required for the basic structure of control flow models of type EPC. However, satellites increase the information content of the model.
You define which organizational unit performs which function and which is involved in an activity and how. Sales also carries out the activity Find addresses. You therefore connect Sales to the activity.
You select Application system because it supports the search for relevant addresses.
The time planner records the date of the product presentation.
When you inserted the Product Management object, you noticed that the handover between the organizational units is not modeled. This is now done by simply dragging a function onto the connection and dropping it.
To see directly how the satellites affect the control flow, you place the connection attribute Type next to the connections.
The model is finished and you can save and close it.
Now you can print the model so that you can use the model graph in a report, for example. When the report is created, you can download the result. The result of the report can also be downloaded later from the Reports bar.
You have created a model with ARIS Connect Designer using Smart Modeling.
