Process design is a primary function of the Development Studio application. The Designer pane contains the design-modeling tools needed to create, edit, and test processes. A process is a set of linked activities that perform a specific function. Development Studio enables you to automate manual processes and when used with the solution helps you manage disparate processes across the organization. You can use pre-built processes to rapidly develop processes customized for your environment.
Many processes are ready for use as soon as they are imported. You can customize the imported process or create a new process in Development Studio. Processes can be simple like executing a SNMP get or complex like analyzing an incoming event then generating and validating a resolution and finally documenting a trouble ticket. Processes can call other processes to use additional functionality.
