The Processes In Your Enterprise

Configured With A Clear Structure

The foundation for a process orientation that is put into practice successfully is enterprise documentation in which all employees can find the policies relevant for them and can recognize the interconnections between the individual activities. In pursuit of this objective, the N5-Process Solution is the central module in the N5-Solutions component system.


Process structure
N5 ProcessSolution 50
Designing processes
Use sub-processes, supporting documents and descriptions to define how your enterprise functions.
Use the integrated organigram to select the departments which have strategic and operative responsibility for a process.
With what?
Interactions between processes are documented and made visible by the linking of clearly defined inputs and outputs.
According to what?
Target key data and the requirements of your relevant catalogues mark the boundaries for carrying out processes.
Ensure compliance
The role-based workflow of creation, checking and release makes it child’s play to include all participants.
The N5-Process Solution recognizes changes between process versions and indicates these without any action on your part.
A follow-up function reminds the process owners and administrators of reviews of the process contents which are due.
With the N5-Process Solution, you get comprehensive support for ensuring conformity and compliance in your enterprise.
Harmonize processes
Create process maps for each sub-area of your enterprise (e.g. for business units and/or locations).
Pass on processes from your master process map to local process maps as defaults.
Enhance the local process model with location-specific processes and adapt the defaults within the context of defined limits.
Control and visualize interactions between processes across all process maps.
Integrate the system environment
Web services and other interfaces make it possible to integrate operation into your IT system environment.
Links to the contents of other IT systems in your enterprise can be created directly in the processes.
Recognize the system boundaries relative to your customers, suppliers and the other stakeholders of your management system.
Define the interactions between your enterprise and its external partners.
Use on the Intranet
Recognize the interplay of all activities in the process model across all departments and locations.
The current version of all process descriptions is available at any time on the Intranet for all employees.
Consistent format
Uniform templates for the process descriptions and clearly-structured PDF printouts make it easier for you to understand the contents.
Every employee can access individual suggestion lists and manage process bookmarks in his or her own profile.

How does your business provide its services?

The process model represents the hierarchical framework of activities in which your business is clearly mapped. The structuring of the processes is carried out from coarse to fine using the top-down principle. From the main process on the top-most process level on down to the flowchart as the most elementary process description, you have complete freedom without limits.

What is needed to do what?

In the N5 Process Solution, you define inputs and outputs explicitly for each process and link them with the suitable upstream and/or downstream processes. With the interactions between individual activities defined in this way, your management system documentation is transformed into a process map.

Who is responsible?

The clarification of strategic and operative responsibilities for each activity is carried out by the selection of the appropriate organisational unit in your enterprise. The structural organization in the form of an organisational chart is an integral part of the N5-Solutions. Figuratively speaking, the organisational chart is transplanted right into the process map.

Which requirements need to be taken into consideration?

You manage normative, statutory or customer-specific requirements as catalogues in the N5-Solutions. Key figures are structured on score cards. The specific requirements and targets are anchored in the individual processes and thereby define the guidelines of your integrated management system.
