What is BPMN?
With BPMN, modeling processes simply involves modeling the event that triggers the process and then mapping all of the activities or events (represented by rectangles) that occur until an outcome is reached. Decisions and alternatives are mapped using gateways (represented by lozenges), and all of the process shapes are then linked. The resulting process map closely resembles a flowchart that can be intuitively understood by non-technical business users.
The graphical notations achieve this objective by streamlining and simplifying divergent processes into compact, bite-sized bits of readily digestible information. In addition, the notations are standardized, which means developers, analysts and management executives all have the same frame of reference and level of understanding. For instance, BPMN can ensure that the otherwise complex documents coded in Extensible Markup Language (XML) can be visualized and understood with the help of a common notation that everyone understands.
How does BPMN Work?
Used to represent specific activities, events or gateways within the process. Symbols for flow objects include geometric figures such as triangles, rectangles, circles and diamonds. It should be remembered that within BPMN, an ‘activity’ is any work performed as part of a process. It is divided into two types – a) tasks, and b) sub-processes.
