(TEN) "as-is" existing or current flow of company business process i. Stakeholders of each business process ii. Narrative description of at least 5 business process [Date] 2 iii. Modeling diagram of each project by using Conceptdraw tool :

1.    Forecasting:

To get over the challenge of product variability, and to know the demand of the customers, IKEAS relies on extensive forecasting, and usually planning production five years in advance.

2.    Product design:

 In this process they will make sure that products have four criteria: affordability, sustainability, good design, and functionality. hence, the design-planning of any product starts by first setting a price at which a product will be sold. Accordingly, the designers will select design elements, raw materials, and production techniques to reduce production costs. Moreover, IKEA will standardize the production processes by using particular raw materials and the same base design for their products.

3.    Internal supplier (Swedwood) & External suppliers:

After the previse process IKEA will send the designs to either internal supplier, as IKEA have their own manufactory (Swedwood), or to external suppliers.

4.    Bid Competition and Production:

The bid team will assure that clients will produce quality bids which stand out above the competition and Bid production is a hugely important factor to consider. So finally, in this process the product will be produces and ready for distributions.

5.    Distribution Centers:

Since the products are ready for sell, they will be transported to a network of 47 IKEA owned, highly-automated distribution centers located in 17 countries. Furthermore, to optimize the warehousing and transportation requirement, the finished products are tightly packed into flat packages, which will decrease the transportation cost and warehousing costs.

6.    Stores:

In this process the stores around the world will receive the products from various distribution centers. Therefore, the customer can shop and buy their desired products.

7.    Final Customer:

Finally, the customers can browse and select items to purchase, then go to the store's warehouse to take the packages by themselves. According to IKEA strategy the customer is responsible for picking up their packages. Consequently, it decreased labor cost. Also, the customer will be responsible for the delivery of their items which will save on labor, shipping and overhead costs on IKEA company.
