A business process, such as the credit approval process, accomplishes or produces something of value to the organization. 42. In order to manage a process, the process needs to have outputs that are measurable. 43. Process design is typically mapped and documented using a modeling tool, such as Microsoft Excel. 44. Not only is the development of the process important, the testing is equally as critical.

45. The BPM approach has its roots in just-in-time (JIT), which is the radical redesign of an organization's business processes. 46. The BPR and JIT approaches were both based on assumptions. And if those assumptions are not met, then they will fail to achieve the great expected results. 47. Many JIT implementations in the U.S. actually increased inventory costs because JIT is based on the assumption that warehousing costs are extremely high, as they were in Japan where JIT was initiated by Toyota. 48. When applying business process reengineering (BPR), managers first attempt to automate or semi-automate an organization's business processes. 49. An advantage of JIT is that it significantly decreases transportation and ordering costs. 50. In the 1990s, most organizations failed to achieve fundamental business process improvements because they attended a BPR seminar and then made mistakes in the implementation.
