K2 Process Simulation

Simulate process workload and predict optimal team sizes.

BlueWave product boxes

Overview

BlueWave's simulation module allows you to import K2 processes and simulate them with different workloads and team sizes.

This allows for relationships between process flow and team workload to be identified, potentially identifying process inefficiencies or providing information about optimal team sizes.


Visual Designer

Import K2 processes and use the visual designer to configure simulation parameters in a drag and drop fashion. Make use of Intuitive configuration options to create scenarios for all your critical k2 Processes.


Scenario Simulation

Simulate scenarios with configurable critical simulation parameters:

  • Activity Duration Estimates
  • Work Volume Estimates
  • Destination Work Allocation
  • Service Level Agreements
  • Business Team Definitions
More information ▾

Simulation parameters which deal with uncertain or probabilistic quantities (such as the duration of a step in a process) are configured using the minimum and maximum values for the range, as well as a graph representing the probability distribution.

This allows users to accurately and rapidly express various scenarios, making the result of the simulation more accurate and valuable.


Create Simulations and Reuse Them Later

Create Simulation contexts with unique business parameters. Configure critical simulation Roles to monitor. Save and retrieve numerous simulations for different business scenarios.

More information ▾

Process simulation definitions can be quickly cloned and modified, allowing the user to test the implications of reassigning work to different teams, test outcomes with different workload assumptions, and much more.

Similarly, team definitions can be rapidly cloned and changed, allowing different team sizes to be tested alongside each other.


Simulate Service Level Agreements (SLAs)

Predict workload and timelines for your K2 process. Easily identify critical failures that may adversely affect your Service Level Agreements. Re-allocate your teams and re-simulate to improve and streamline production, and to visualise whether all expectations are met.


Reports

Make use of clear graphical reports to identify the over/under loaded teams for the foreseeable future, before you go to production.

Simulation results can be exported to HTML for sharing, or record keeping.


Optimise via Visualisation

Easily identify critical failures from numerous visual displays. Identify the weak points of your processes and adjust your team allocations for an optimal end result.
