Efficient bundling of similar activities – Batch Processing with Camunda

Written by Luise Pufahl on , under Execution category.
Batch Processing in business processes is the ability to execute an activity or a set of activities for several business cases simultaneously. In practice, we can observe different cases where the bundled execution of several cases is beneficial and can improve process performance. In healthcare, it is more time-efficient to first collect a set of blood samples taken from patients to deliver them to the laboratory instead of sending a nurse for each separately.

Recommending CMMN Activities

Written by Thorben Lindhauer on , under Execution category.

The Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) standard deals with unstructured work that is performed in the context of a so-called case. A CMMN model specifies the frame in which a case is handled. It expresses design time considerations, such as hard restrictions when an activity can be performed or not. Aside from that, there are often soft patterns that only emerge at runtime based on case workers’ experience. Detecting such patterns and providing insights to case workers can make dedicated case management with CMMN and Camunda especially useful.

KPI Monitoring with Camunda

Written by Felix Müller on , under Community category.
Key performance indicators (KPIs) are the most important metric for analyzing statistical data of business processes: KPIs can not only be used to highlight efficiencies and inefficiencies in business processes, but they can help to subsequently improve specific activities in order to speed up process execution. Choosing the right KPIs and displaying the data in a simple and intuitive way is key for process improvement. One of the most common requirements for KPI monitoring is about time-sensitive business processes.
