Business Process Reengineering

Business Process Reengineering is a business management tools, originally pioneered in the early 1990s, focusing on the analysis and redesign of core business processes and workflows within and between organization in order to optimize end-to-end processes and eliminate non-value-added tasks. Business Process Reengineering aimed to help organizations fundamentally rethink how they do their work in order to achieve dramatic improvements in productivity, cycle times, quality, and become world-class enterprise.

Business processes are characterized by three elements: the inputs, (data such customer requirements or material specifications), the processing of the data or materials (which usually go through several activities and may necessary stops that turns out to be waste), and the outcome (expected result). The problematic part of the process is processing. Business process reengineering mainly intervenes in the processing part, which is reengineered in order to become lean and efficient.
