The BPMN Business Process Diagram visualizes the business workflow in a graphical way which is easy to be understood by anybody. Besides the workflow, it also tells the responsibility of a particular role in the company, i.e. who is doing what. But in the real situation, the task probably is not done by a particular role alone, participant may need to consult others or inform others when performing a task. This important information is also critical to the workflow but cannot be seen in the business process diagram. With Visual Paradigm, we can make use of the RACI chart to fill these information. In this tutorial, we will show you how to generate the RACI chart from your business process diagram using Visual Paradigm and how to share your RACI chart with your colleagues by using the PDF report.

RACI chart is a matrix that presents the different responsibilities of people, teams, department or any other business units in completing business activities for a business process. A typical RACI chart involves rows of participants and columns of business activities. Cells, when appropriate, are marked with letters R, A, C or I, with each of them representing a specific kind of responsibility. Here is a description of RACI:
R - Responsible. Participant does something to achieve a specific business activity.
A - Accountable (also approver or final approving authority). Participant who verifies the completeness and correctness of business activity.
C - Consulted. Participant who gives advice on business activity.
I - Informed. Participant who is kept updated on the progress on business activity.
You also need to download the sample project with BPD, which will be used to demonstrate the generation of RACI chart throughout this tutorial.
