    Scheer PAS Designer is the platform's modeling tool for digitization. The easy-to-use, innovative and model-based tool allows you to create processes in BPMN 2.0 format via a graphical user interface. At the same time you can realize the technical implementation into UML by using supplied or self-created libraries. You can use the finished models without further programming as xUML microservices in containers. The use of the Designer also boosts the work of fusion teams by allowing key users, process managers and IT responsibles to work simultaneously on the same process.
