What is the Business Process Modeling?

Business process modeling (BPM) in systems engineering is the activity of representing processes of an enterprise, so that the current process may be analyzed or improved. BPM is typically performed by business analysts, who provide expertise in the modeling discipline; by subject matter experts, who have specialized knowledge of the processes being modeled; or more commonly by a team comprising both. Alternatively, the process model can be derived directly from events' logs using process mining tools.

One of such applications, which is known to be a great alternative of MS Visio for Mac, is ConceptDraw PRO software.

The mentioned business process modelling diagram software is very useful for creating any kinds of diagrams, including the BPM one, as it provides all of the necessary tools to make the final result look simply great and professional, offering the pre-made examples and templates of the existing diagrams as well as the stencils, which are all can become a part of your engineering drawings.

Having both ConceptDraw PRO drawing software and ConceptDraw STORE means having enough tools for creating the great looking as well as smart BPM diagrams, common for being used in the systems engineering in order to represent the needed processes of some particular enterprise, so that the current process may be analyzed or/and improved.


BPMN Tool

Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) is a common standard for the modeling of business processes. Graphical notation provided by BPMN is applied when designing the Business Process Diagrams for analyzing and process improvement, uncovering and elimination problems, solving new challenges and goals in organizational development, reducing costs and increasing profits, and enhancement quality and performance.

The Business Process Diagram or Business Process Flowchart graphically represents the actions and steps in a process, depicts relations between major parts of the system, the sequence of executed steps using lines and arrows, and also connections between various systems.

BPMN 2.0 diagram design elements and symbols

The aim of BPMN is assist in creating a diagram that is immediately understandable to all business stakeholders, with graphic elements that can be adapted to represent any form of function, decision, work or data flow. The symbols and structure it uses to do this can be divided into a number of categories:

  • Flow objects — includes Events, which are parts of a process that happen automatically, denoted by a circle; Activities show work that needs to be done, shown as a round-cornered rectangle; Gateways show a splitting or merging of paths, using a diamond shape.
  • Connecting objects — used to connect flow objects, either as Sequence Flow, which indicated the order of activities; Message Flow, a dashed line that shows interaction between organizational boundaries, shown on diagrams as 'Pools'; Association is a dotted line used to connect an 'Artifact' or text to an activity.
  • Swim lanes — the widest possible overview of a process involving different organizations is known as a Pool. Different organizations each have their own Lane within the Pool, and are connected using Message Flow connecting objects.
  • Artifacts — Artifacts are pieces of information added to certain Activity flow objects to giver better understanding to those viewing the process diagram. They can be data required or produces, extra activities, or simply explanatory text.
  • Choreographies — These symbols allow the opportunity to show an activity or step that describes the behavior between business participants.
