Discuss in how far order management might be sequentially related to booking, billing, shipment, and delivery. Most of the time, the insight into the relations between processes may be less than strictly exact. The most important goal of capturing dependent relations is to gain an understanding of how the performance of a process is related to that of another. If one would, for example, redesign an existing process it is useful to understand which processes depend on the outcomes of such a process. Such downstream processes may need to be prepared for receiving information or goods in another frequency or form than before and measures should be taken to prevent any disruptions.
