The Optimizer gives ….


The
Optimizer

is a tool designed to help you:


Optimize your processes during development and after deployment


Understand and refine

process models


Gain visibility and insight

into your business processes



Simulate as you develop

your processes


To
test and refine

process designs
before implementation

(that is, validate
your overall process modeling strategy



Optimize production processes

using the Performance Data Warehouse


After processes are up and running
, analyze them using historical data stored
in the Performance Data Warehouse.


Running historical analyses enables you to measure and then improve the efficiency
of your processes by performing advanced
what
-
if comparative analyses

WebSphere Lombardi Edition’s Optimizer

Optimizer enables you to…

Benefit

Simulate process performance

Understand process design issues that could affect
performance
before process implementation

Identify bottlenecks and other
issues

Optimize

processes
already in production

Compare actual process
performance to simulations

Analyze

how well your processes are doing
compared
to the goals that you set

Compare simulations to historical
performance data

Analyze
what would happen if

you made specific
changes to your processes

Simultaneously analyze multiple
processes from a single or
multiple process applications


Identify resources that are over
-

or under
-
used across
processes and applications


Compare performance

from month to month or
quarter to quarter for specific sets of processes


Experiment with the performance of multiple processes
by simulating the addition of resources to one or more
participant groups and
finding the best results
across processes and workloads
