APTTOOL SOFTWARE

AptTool Business Operating System Software

AptTool is a software application for creating business operating systems and process mapping. It has the capability to create high level business operating systems, such as financial, production and other systems, to which specific instructional-based processes can be linked in a hierarchy, to create a dynamic systemic description of how the organization operates. Since the business processes are represented by documented process mapping, that have the capabiity to link specific documents and procedures, it therefore enables leadership to optimize their organization and conform to regulatory and ISO requirements. Below is the systems diagram for a fictitious company. From this top-level systems diagram one can create all the sub systems and their organizational processes.

In the real business operating systems software you can click on the process flow diagram (process map) icon underneath the conversion processes, and create your process flow diagrams. For instance, you can create the process flow diagram for manufacture. See the example below.

You can also create sub-systems underneath the conversion processes to enable parent-child-grandchild…

and so on, subsystems; and subsequent sub-processes… ad infinitum. In this way you can create with our business operating systems software all the company’s systems and processes in an interlinking and descriptive way that shows how the company operates, and depicts the procedures, methods and instructions that need to be followed in order to accomplish the company’s aim and objectives. The total operating systems for the organization can be accessed on any company computer where the software was installed. A central database can house all the organization’s operating systems, processes and procedures. This ensures consistent and optimized operations with standardized execution. For instance, the CEO can be in front of her computer and view how a worker assembles an item on the production  line.

Many organizations and leaders “manage by the seat of their pants”, meaning that there are no fixed systems and methods by means of which work gets done. This not only creates confusion and frustration in the organization, but causes waste and poor quality and productivity. Unplanned and poorly, or non-documented methods and procedures, increase variation, stress and costs.

In order to optimize the organization’s business systems and processes all staff should have access to AptTool. Some people will have editing rights, while others can not edit to make changes or updates. The decision as to who has editing rights can be changed and updated in the installed package. AptTool thus enables the organization to create consistency in work and to design and build capable business systems and processes.
