Process Modeling with BPMN
This session provides the participants with background and experience using some of the key elements of BPMN – Business Process Modeling and Notation. Leveraging experience with other techniques used for modeling processes, ranging from simple flow charts to swim lane diagrams to tool-assisted complex techniques, BPMN is becoming a widely-accepted approach.
This session describes some of the features which make BPMN attractive to modelers such as ways to model interactions of multiple organizations, to illustrate a range of decision-making options, and to exchange data and messages. Participants then use some of those techniques in illustrative process fragments during the workshop.
You’ll learn how to:
- choose which of 5 different types of decision gateways to use in process flows – inclusive or, exclusive or, parallel, event-based, and complex
- model different types of gateways
- model the interactions of several unique organizations via messages or data
- add notes and other annotations to process models
