Advanced Value Stream Mapping

Too often the Process Analysis & Design work and downstream application development work is hampered  by the application of antiquaited modeling techniques and absent a set of rules which ensure a high first pass yield of all of the downstream dependent application development work products e.g., Use Cases, Detailed Process and System Design, User Acceptance Tests, Process-based Training Materials.
  
Better enabling Process Reengineering/Streamling as well as the Application Development Work while reducing the Time and Cost to Value requires a rules-based approach to modeling and a simple yet more advanced modeling method. To these ends, DSA has developed the RAO Method:
                 Our Modeling Method
  Resource           Someone or Something
    action                  does Something to
    Object          Someone or Something Else
    
           A Simple Sentence Construct!
Why our method is better:
  1. Enables capture of the Full Lifecycle of all Resources through the Process
      a. Establishes the Groups and Roles that will need to be configured in to the Organizational Model of your PLM Application
  2. Enables your capture of all of the Actions taken by all of the Resources on all of the Objects through the process
      a. Provides the workflow requirements for your PLM Application
      b. Provides the access control requirements for your PLM Application
      c. Better enables the identification of potentially non value-adding work tasks to better enable your Value Assessment and
          subsequent reengineering/streamlining of process
  3. Enables capture of the full Lifecycle of all of the Objects through the process
      a. Provides the Top Level Object Model
  4. Better enables the creation of Process and/or Role-based Training Materials 
Make Application of a Simple set of Rules :
  1. Capture all of the Event Triggers - what initiates the Process
  2. Capture all of the Inputs for each Event Trigger
  3. Capture the Pre-condition of ech input to required to ensure a High Fisrt Pass Yield through the Process
  4. Capture of the Full Lifecycle of all Resources through the Process
  5. Capture of all of the Actions taken by all of the Resources on all of the Objects through the process
  6. Capture of the full Lifecycle of all of the Objects through the process
  7.   Captue the Conditional Branches and set theType of Branch e.g., AND, AND/OR, EXCLUSIVE OR
