Recent years, Firms have to use various and complex business processes for providing knowledge needs that is becoming increased. With understanding impact of the business processes on performance and profitableness of the firms, many academicians and managers need to get closer these business processes. With integrating needs between each process, it is inevitable to use improved systems for modeling and analyzing these business processes. For using these systems, it is necessary to be supported software and to be trained for using this software. In this work, as a stochastic network solution, GERT (Graphical Evaluation and Review Technique) is used to model and analysis as-is and to-be processes. An example business process is modeled and analyzed by using GERT and its analytical calculation ability.

    A fundamental problem in PERT networks is to identify a project's critical paths and its critical activities. In this paper we define the criticality index of a path as the probability that the duration of the path is greater than or equal to the duration of every other path in the network and...

    The notion of critical path is a key issue in the temporal analysis of project scheduling in deterministic setting. The very essence of the CPM consists in identifying the critical path, i.e., the longest path in a project network, because this path conveys information on how long it should take...
