One of the first people to describe processes was Adam Smith in his famous (1776) example of an English pin factory. He described the production of a pin in the following way: â€One man draws out the wire, another straightens it, a third cuts it, a fourth points it, a fifth grinds it at the top for receiving the head: to make the head requires two or three distinct operations: to put it on is a particular business, to whiten the pins is another ... and the important business of making a pin is, in this manner, divided into about eighteen distinct operations, which in some manufactories are all performed by distinct hands, though in others the same man will sometime perform two or three of themâ€. The result of labor division in Smithâ€™s example resulted in productivity increasing by 24,000 percent, i.e. that the same number of workers made 240 times as many pins as they had been producing before the introduction of labor division.
The enterprises are exploring modular architecture to isolate their business processes from their applications, which gives them the flexibility to add, upgrade, or replace applications in their information technology environment without redefining all of their process interfaces.
The business process management (BPM) market at $1.0 billion in 2005 is expected to more than triple to $3.8 billion by 2012. The services oriented architecture (SOA) market at $450 million in 2005 is expected to grow rapidly through 2012, reaching $3.2 billion
