Creating Business Processes in Primavera Unifier – Primavera Tips and Tricks: Tip 52

Author: Dipesh Vasa      Publish Date: May 19, 2017

Primavera Unifier transaction and collaboration functions are driven by business processes. Information is entered and stored in Primavera Unifier using electronic business process (BP) forms.

Each time you fill out a business process form, you are creating a new record in Unifier.

Business process records are stored in logs, which are accessible in the Navigator. You can think of these logs as filing cabinets, with each drawer storing a different type of business process.

Business processes can be associated with specific projects or shells (project- or shell-level BPs) or can be applicable for the entire company (company-level BPs).

Primavera uDesigner is a great tool that provides a quick and easy way to design business process forms. In this edition of the PrescienceAdvantage® Tips & Tricks, we will demonstrate how to build a simple Primavera Unifier business process using uDesigner. Logic can also be added to forms to create BPs with workflows, which we will demonstrate in the next edition of the Prescience Advantage® Tips & Tricks.

In order to use uDesigner, you should:
