New Tom Sawyer Business Process Solution

Tom Sawyer Business Process solution helps complex organizations more rapidly design and validate processes to better standardize and continuously improve their business operations.

Tom Sawyer Business Process solution includes three modules:

The graphical design studio gives modelers the ability to rapidly prototype, construct, and publish validated processes. The application complies with the Object Modeling Group BPMN 2.0 standard for business process modeling.

Designers can work on improvements to processes without interrupting currently running versions of those processes.

Administrators can manage and oversee processes from across the organization.

Tom Sawyer Perspectives automatic layout eliminates the tedium of manually rearranging process models as you work.

New Tom Sawyer Model-Based Engineering Solution

Tom Sawyer MBE helps organizations automate SysML and non-SysML diagram customization and quality assurance.

This new MBE solution offers three main features:


Organizations use Tom Sawyer Model-Based Engineering to view diagrams from the desktop or web, and customize and validate them in minutes instead of hours or days

Enhanced Graph and Data Visualization Solution

The Graph and Data Visualization solution includes the following enhancements:

Automated Swimlane Diagrams

Swimlane diagrams combine the logic of a flow chart with the accountability of an action item list. They show what person, role, or entity is responsible for each step in a process. Automated swimlane diagrams in Tom Sawyer Perspectives eliminate hours of repetitive labor by automatically rearranging and updating content to accommodate changes in people, processes, and presentations.

Swimlane Diagrams

Tom Sawyer Perspectives automates swimlane diagrams to help keep processes current and people or departments accountable

Integrated Node Growth Model

This release continues Tom Sawyer Software’s leadership in intelligent layout. Innovations include:

Modern Java Architecture

Version 8.0, Java Edition now uses a modular Spring architecture. The Spring architecture’s modular approach makes Tom Sawyer Perspectives more extensible and configurable.
