BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE APPLICATION FOR ENHANCING COMPANIES’ KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS: EDUCATION APPROACH

BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE APPLICATION FOR ENHANCING COMPANIES’ KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS: EDUCATION APPROACH
Roman Šperka

Abstract: This paper presents business process management software application which is intended to be used to simulate trading company behaviour with the aim to improve its key performance indicators. The application is able to be set up according to various simulation models and decision functions. We provide an example of simulation model implementation and introduce the graphical interface and simulation possibilities of the application. The paper firstly introduces some of the main ideas of business process management discipline. Secondly, it describes an implementation of simulation model and finally, it depicts the graphical user interface of the application.
Keywords: business, process, management, simulation, trading.
