Business process modeling is one of the driving forces in the design of Oracle Fusion Applications. This modeling carries through to almost every aspect of Oracle Fusion Financials. The Business Process Models (BPMs) manage the deployment, upgrade, integration, and configuration of the product. Oracle Fusion documentation follows the process models very closely. Roles Based Access security is also tied closed to the BPM Model, so that tasks and activities are assigned appropriately. Messaging and online help are arranged along BPM lines. Field support uses the BPM models to organize their efforts to examine and resolve issues

The Business Process Model has five levels.

The Business Process Model has five levels:

  • Level zero (L0): A specific industry organized around raising capital, executing a business model, and reporting the resultant income to shareholders. For example, Automotive, Communications, Education, Healthcare, and Utilities, to name a few of the approximately thirty identified industries.

  • Level one (L1): A specific business process area.

  • Level two (L2): A specific business process

  • Level three (L3): A specific activity.

  • Level four (L4): Specific tasks involved in an activity.

The following example shows one path of the BPM process with the L1: Financial Control and Reporting.

The figure shows that all industries have at least one
level one business area defined. The L1: Financial Control and Reporting
has a L2 process Close Accounting Period. Part of that L2 is a L3
activity of Close Ledgers. The some of the specific L4 tasks are Open
First Period and Transfer Balances Across Ledgers.

Oracle Fusion Financials employs eight of the twenty two BPM L1s to track the major functional and implementation components and tasks.
