Systems Engineering based on Process Management
Carina Schneider & Nico Michels – Fresenius Medical Care
Our goal is a living collaboration-centered Engineering Environment that helps to develop the best therapy systems for our patients. This Engineering Environment is generated by Domains. A Domain is a global functional team organized as a sustainable network. It acts agile with the responsibility to define and build Capabilities: a combination of Business Processes, Methods, Data Organization, Tools and Training provides and increases our Engineering ability.
A central part of that is the definition of flow-efficient processes with its guidance, based on Systems Engineering and Business Process Management Capabilities. Systems Engineering is our interdisciplinary approach to parallelize and cross-functionalize our processes. Business Process Management helps us to define, release, analyze, measure, and improve the processes in our business. This approach and framework is used by all other Domains with Business Process Ownership for handling the Business Processes of their area of responsibility.
