FIGM Business Process Flowcharts
The Business Process Flowchart (BPF) is a graphical representation of how the process will be completed after MAGIC Go-Live. The flowchart documents the steps or activities involved in the process, from the agency end user’s point of view. The Process Flowchart “Swim Lane” refers to the specific format of the flowchart that groups steps and activities according to the roles and/or organizational areas involved in the process. Each “lane” of the diagram shows the responsibilities of a particular security role, organizational area, or controlling agency in completing the process.
Most processes in MAGIC involve multiple security roles, organizational areas, and often multiple agencies to complete. The Process Flow diagrams depict the connections, communications, and hand-offs between individuals, departments, and agencies and can help users visualize the participants, stages, decisions, inputs, and outputs of the process.
