With SAP Enterprise Modeling by IDS Scheer, you can, for example, as business process expert, use the modeling tool ARIS in the following phases of business process development:

  • Business Blueprint design phase, to design business processes from scratch

  • Upgrade phase, to redocument business processes which have been further developed in your company, to reflect the current status.


Complex Modeling

When you model a business process from scratch with ARIS, you can, for example, use AND and OR operators to design complex structures with alternative process steps.

Note Note

You can also design business processes from scratch with SAP Solution Manager. The SAP Solution Manager tries to give a quick overview of important business processes and business process steps, rather than modeling complex structures.

  1. Create the project and the system landscape in SAP Solution Manager.
