Hi John
thanks for the information,
1.) The advantage / disadvantage of SwimLane / Flowchart is still unclear to me.
When should you choose which shape?
A swimlane will typically use the standard process flow chart symbols. The advantage lies solely with displaying the relationships between different functional groups. If all the work takes place within a single group, there is no benefit.

Hi there
Thanks for the information.
But I have to ask further:

a.) there is a practical example for a complete process description of a core process E.K. purchasing or logistics in text form

b.) in this description "a" a flowchart and a swim lane diagram integrated.

That would help my considerations a lot.
Good time

Qualygirl,

Your core process flows from customer needs to cash in the bank (or continued funding if not for profit).

Purchasing would be a key process within the core process or a support process to enable the core process.

Do you want examples of both types of swimlane flowchart with the corresponding textual procedure for a key process?

Such duplication would be a waste but someone here may be able to help.

Best wishes,

John

Attached is an example of a Procurement process in the format we generate with our own software - it is a cross between graphical and narrative, and uses swimlanes (and RACI).
