Process governance is an important feature of the EPC Web App that enables responsible improvement of business items, processes and activities. Process governance provides various checkpoints throughout the business improvement process that assure that the individuals responsible are consulted and sign off on improvements made.
System Administrators and EPC Modelers, on the back end, can assign Roles and Resources as approvers for any item or process within the EPC. If changes are made to these items, the individuals assigned as approvers, will have to sign off (or “approve”) on the change prior before the change can be implemented.
The EPC provides 2 kinds of approval cycles:
Within both of these approval cycles, users will be provided with visual representations of the changes being made. Users can compare and contrast the proposed change with the status quo and select the alternative they believe will be best for the organization.
