Subject The article discusses the potential for applying optimization methods with respect to event-driven and functional diagrams of business processes as part of labor productivity management in the process-based business structure.
Objectives The study is intended to develop tools for optimizing event-driven and functional diagrams as part of labor productivity management, using a comprehensive approach to various forms of business process presentation.
Methods Expanding the tools, we applied methods of analysis, modeling, abstraction, idealization and comparison.
Results We propose an augmented and refined concept of using optimization tools of event-driven and functional diagram of business processes to increase labor productivity. The article shows an algorithm for applying the updated optimization tools, illustrating a business process. We conduct a feasibility study of the augmented technique.
Conclusions and Relevance If a comprehensive approach to various forms of business process presentation is implemented, a flexible and adaptive algorithm is formed to use the augmented and refined technique for optimizing event-driven and functional diagrams. The tools of the augmented optimization technique allows to increase labor productivity by reducing the duration, manpower and cost of business processes. The proposed technique has some strengths as compared with other techniques, being versatile and applicable to any enterprises. The technique optimizes business processes in terms of six aspects, without requiring complex and expensive software applications, being practicable even for smaller businesses.
