This paper takes the basic constructs of the IP-Map diagram and demonstrates how they can be combined with the Event-Driven Process Chain Methodology’s family of diagrams. This extended family of diagrams can be used to more fully describe the organizational, procedural, informational, and communication structure of a business process while at the same time highlighting the manufacture of the information products used by that business process. The paper concludes with a review of requirements for a software package that will allow analysts to model and explore their business processes with an emphasis on improving the quality of the organization’s information products.
