About DCR

The Dynamic Condition Response graph (DCR-graph) is a BPM methodology and IT-technology.
DCR has been developed in cooperation between the IT University of Copenhagen and Exformatics. DCR is a cloud-based BPM solution, which is used by companies and organizations all over the world. DCR is a method and a digital tool that makes it possible to describe and simulate workflows and business processes in a more agile way than is currently possible with traditional tools and methodologies. DCR retains the flexibility of the workflow and demonstrates how processes meet business, regulatory and compliance requirements. The digital workflows in DCR can be embedded and modified in real time in the IT systems. In 2016 the DCR solution was finalist for the recognized, global price, BPM Awards.

The DCR graph is a solution to the complicated, practical challenge of describing complex processes in detail. Out of necessity, simplified versions are often made in regards to depicting process, often by using inadequate flow charts, which only support simplified versions of the process and do not fully satisfy the organisation’s actual needs. Instead of flow charts, DCR graphs focus on: goals, activities and rules.

DCR Graph Advantages

The many benefits related to DCR graphs consist of:

  • The likelihood of goal achievement by digitization is increased remarkably, due to the fact that DCR graphs focus on facts of reality and not on overly simplified illustrations.
  • Through digital simulations it is possible to involve users at an early stage, and thus enable them to provide valuable feedback to the process work.
  • DCR graphs boost knowledge sharing by gathering knowledge and sharing it in the correct area of context.
  • The ownership of a process can more easily be embedded into the line of businesses, instead of an IT- or process department.
  • The ownership of a process can more easily be embedded into the business, instead of an IT- or process department.
  • In DCR-supported IT-systems, changes can be realized immediately, as the necessity of additional programming or support from IT-experts is no longer needed in order to change system processes.
  • The tool used to work with DCR graphs can be connected to by a browser and does not require a local installation of any kind.
  • It’s easy to learn how to work with DCR graphs, meaning that expenditures related to training and implementation are kept at a bare minimum.
  • It will be possible to provide precise, detailed requirement-specifications for IT-systems, which ensures the correct digitization of complex work procedures
