Model and Verify Standard Operating Procedures Rapidly

with Sopatra, Your Digital Assistant

Convert SOP Documents into Process Models through Artificial Intelligence

SOP to diagram

Simulating standard operating procedures allows you to reduce procedural risk and cost of failure while increasing awareness of constraints.

More Reliable SOPs in 4 Steps

Step 2. Model

When you import your SOP, Sopatra handles the modeling for you. You can add attributes to each procedural step, add or delete steps, create a decomposition of steps, and more.

Step 4: Analyze

To check variance, run your model in the Monte-Carlo Simulator. Receive valuable analytics on Procedure Buffer Time (PBT), Allowable Operating Time Window, and Probability of Failure to Complete.

Step 1: Import

Import your Standard Operating Procedures and related materials into the Text to Diagram automation via NLP technology. You can use guides to help you format the SOP for a better import process.

Step 3: Verify

Run your model in a Discrete Event Simulator. This ensures your process works and provides you with analytics such as Time of Performance, Gantt Chart, and Tree Map.

Allowable Operational Time Window 

AOTW is the time before something bad happens.

Time of Procedure

TOP is the time it takes to perform a procedure.
