Workflow diagramming


Business Process Model and Notation, or BPMN, is well-known to be a graphical representation for specifying the business processes in a business process model, being developed by the Business Process Management Initiative and maintained by the Object Management Group. The Business Process Model and Notation is simply a standard for business process modelling, providing a graphical notation for specifying the business processes in a Business Process Diagram, based on a flowcharting technique very similar to activity diagrams from Unified Modelling Language, also known as UML. The aim of using BPMN is to support the business process management within some particular organization. It can be used by both business users as well as technical users in a way of providing a notation that is intuitive to the business users, yet able to represent complex process semantics.

The primary goal of Business Process Model and Notation is to provide a standard notation readily understandable by all business stakeholders, which includes the business analysts creating and refining the processes as well as the technical developers responsible for implementing these processes. The business managers are usually also involved in such processes, monitoring and managing them. Nowadays, there are a few competing standards for such business process modelling languages used by the modelling tools and processes. In 2014, BPMN was complemented by a new standard for building the so called “Decision Model and Notation standard” — the decision models.

BPMN was developed in order to support only the concepts of modelling, applicable to business processes, while other types of modelling done by organizations for non-process purposes were out of scope for BPMN. The examples of modelling excluded from BPMN are, nowadays, the organizational structures and the functional breakdowns, as well as “data models”. BPMN is known to be used to show the flow of data, such as messages, as well as the association of the data artifacts to activities, having its models consisting of the simple diagrams constructed from a fixed set of the design symbols. Using such models means simplifying the understanding of the business activities' flow and process for both business developers and business users. There are four basic element categories, used in BPMN, which are flow objects (such as events, activities and gateways), connecting objects (message flow, sequence flow, association), swim lanes (lane, pool), and artifacts (group, data object, annotation), used for enabling the creation of the simple business process diagrams, which also permit making new types of flow objects in order to make the diagrams more understandable.

The weaknesses of BPMN can relate to support for routine work, confusion and ambiguity in sharing BPMN models, support for knowledge work and support for decision-making business rules. Despite of the mentioned weaknesses, the Business Process Models are very widely used, especially in a way of the business process workflow diagrams, using the ConceptDraw PRO business process workflow diagrams software, that works on Mac providing the design objects as well as the pre-made examples of already existing business process workflow diagrams, such as the one, explaining the business process of purchasing the goods, when the money’s received and the manufacturing process takes place, getting through quality assurance to make sure that the final product is good enough for the customer. Going through “inventory” stage, the goods appear to be packed and shipped to the customer. The distributing process can involve logistic procedures, such as storing the produced goods at the warehouses and delivering them locally. In case the goods go abroad, they might be checked as the customs clearance point, but after being confirmed as safe at the customs and after paying all taxes, they can be simply taken by the client if he prefers to pick them up himself, meeting the requirements of his contract with the shipper.

ConceptDraw PRO is a Workflow Diagram Software, which can be used both on Windows and Mac, being a great alternative to MS Visio, but for Mac OS. Once you distil a particular business activity into a set of linear, then you can call this self-contained process a “workflow” one. This term is used for describing the transformation of materials through goods and services provided to a customer base.

The mentioned “workflows” can represent the abstract concepts as well as the development phases of a system, and, of course, the real-time processes, for example the processes of production or manufacturing, customs clearance, delivery or distribution, storing at the warehouses on the way to the customer, etc. The described representations all can be displayed in the way of creating the workflow diagram as well as the process flow diagram.

ConceptDraw PRO software is known to be the best Mac software for drawing such business process as well as workflow diagrams within any business activity. Rich with a set of samples and templates of the pre-made diagrams, having also the specific features for drawing such diagrams faster, makes this software very comfortable in use for its users to draw their own great looking as well as smart looking workflow diagrams.
