This needs study is guided by the organizational business model.
The main activities involved in the study of business needs are as follows:
a) Determination of Business Needs
b) Business Functional Modeling
c) Business Process Modeling
Determining Business Needs
This activity is to ensure that the necessary systems can meet the business needs of the organization. Information related to business needs can be obtained from various sources such as interview notes, written rules and procedures, current system documentation, reports, forms and existing workflows. All such information is gathered to understand further functional needs.
Business Functional Modeling
Business Function Modeling is a technique to identify the functions that are and will be carried out by the organization. This technique produces an organizational business function model to the users represented in the form of a business function hierarchy.
Business Process Modeling
Business process modeling is a technique used to develop a Business Process Model. The business process model presented through the Process Flow Diagram (PFD) describes how the combination of different activities supports a single business process. PFD describes the complexity and arrangement of business activities carried out either sequentially, in parallel or simultaneously. Each activity that has been plotted in the diagram will be detailed in the Business Function Activity Definition table.
