Model

Create models instead of pictures

Engineering processes are complex

 

 

Stages helps to master this complexity with

  • A process meta-model proven in hundreds of process rollouts around the globe
  • Industry best practices like swimlane diagrams, SIPOCs and RASICs
  • A process architecture concept to create large process lifecycles and business unit variants
  • Automatic validation of modeling guidelines and process consistency before release

 

 

Model your processes through an intuitive user interface using latest web technologies.

 

Visualize & Pilot

Understand and learn at maximum speed

Over 80% of all engineering processes are executed by humans

 

 

Stages speeds up process understanding by letting users

  • See processes also from role, phase or milestone perspectives
  • Choose between different diagram types and levels of detail
  • Use any web browser on desktops, tablets, or smartphones
  • Pilot new processes in an agile way

 

 

Your teams will adopt new practices, methods, and tools much faster and easier.

 

Execute

Only do what matters

Engineering processes need to embrace variance

 

 

Stages contains a rules-based tailoring capability that can

  • Calculate the optimal process configuration for each program or project
  • Signal compliance violations during tailoring
  • Adjust project processes on the fly without changing the past

 

 

 

 

Your teams will operate with minimal process overhead and still comply with all regulations.

 

 

 

Integrate

Put the process to work

Engineering processes need to be consistently executed across the tool landscape

 

 

Stages integrates with most common engineering tools:

  • Manage work products, checklists, and templates in Sharepoint, SVN, and PTC Integrity
  • Orchestrate Atlassian Jira and IBM Team Concert to dynamically generate tasks based on the process for each project
  • Generate project plan templates for MS Project and many other systems
  • See status of project work products and other engineering data across all repositories

 

 

Your teams will find the process significantly more useful and easy to follow.

 

Compliance

Reduce risk of non-compliance

Most engineering is performed in regulated environments

 

 

Stages provides a unique capability to map all regulatory and industry standard requirements onto your processes:

  • Receive compliance warnings when modifying or tailoring your processes
  • Detect gaps and run trace reports for processes and their project instances
  • Generate compliance evidence including project work products

 

 

Assure compliance with regulations and drastically reduce the efforts of audits and assessments.

Feedback & KPIs

Learn from your audience

The world continues to change and the processes need to follow

 

 

Actively involve all users to provide feedback directly in the process description:

  • Low entry barrier to give feedback
  • Feedback automatically creates tickets in Jira, PTC Integrity, IBM RTC, or Redmine
  • Gain insights from live usage statistics and KPIs via customizable reports

 

 

Let metrics drive your process improvement.
