Intermediate Event

An Intermediate Event is an event that occurs after a Process has been started, but before the process ends. An Intermediate Event affects the flow of the process by showing where messages and delays are expected, distributing the Normal Flow through exception handling, or showing the extra flow required for compensation. However, an Intermediate Event does not start or directly terminate a process.

An intermediate Event is displayed as a circle, drawn with a thin double line.
