Combining Consecutive Actions

Often in a process map there will be consecutive actions performed by the same resource:
In Enate, an ACTION can have a set of constituent CHECKS. These can represent parts of the activity, but cannot be allocated to different resources or have different due dates.
In the example, these 3 ACTIONS might all be done by the same person with a single overall due date, the constituent activity could then be modelled as checks. This greatly simplifies the map.
Calculate Pay and Start
  • Calculate Pay Band
  • Calculate Start Date
  • Calculate Salary
You would NOT do this if:
  • The ACTIONS need to go to different resources
  • The ACTIONS have different due dates
  • The ACTIONS status need to be highly visible
    • A team leader could see the checks haven’t been done by looking in the ACTION packet, or in dashboards, but couldn’t see it in the Team Leader page or Inbox view.
