A business process is a collection of interrelated, structured activities that ultimately result in an end-product or service for a particular end-user. Keeping track of the intricacies involved in relating every single management, supporting, and operational process to one another for process improvement can often be slow and reliant on trial and error – unless process modeling software is used. Taking after the same concept in scientific modeling used for weather, business process modeling makes use of economic laws instead of physics and chemistry.

In the same way that scientific modeling uses empirical data to create models, in business, modeling software uses available resources like manpower, machinery, and storage space, among others. The efficiency of the model is then used to determine whether a change in resources results in a process improvement or not. It can be used to look for existing bottle necks and to optimize business processes.
