The Role of Events in Modeling Processes Using BPMN 2.0
About this Resource
Events have been one of the distinct features of BPMN since the start and have provided a key point of difference in documenting business processes with BPMN and more traditional approaches to process Modeling and mapping.
Although Events have been previously used when documenting processes, Events were typically either documented as Attributes of Processes and Activities or were defined in the form of specialist diagrams such as State Transition diagrams.
Earlier versions of BPMN only had limited Event handling capability which meant Modeling using standard symbols that then required the use of a myriad of decision gateways. However, BPMN 2.0 has an extensive array of Events that can cater for nearly all possible circumstances.
This White Paper will demonstrate how Events are used when Modeling Processes in BPMN 2.0 by examining:
- The role of Events in BPMN 2.0 in terms of what they are, why we need them as well as what they are used for;
- The different types of Events available in BPMN 2.0 and how they are commonly used; and;
- Some best practice recommendations in how to name and use Events in your business process Modeling.
