Business Process Model and Notation

Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) is a standard set of graphical notations used for modeling the business processes in the form of Business Process Diagrams and for specifying the business processes in a workflow. These notations are simple and understandable for all business users and technical specialists, such as business analysts that create, analyze and improve the processes, technical developers responsible for realization processes, managers that monitor processes and manage them, and even for non-technical observers. The BPMN diagrams help the business users timely uncover problems and effectively eliminate them, increase performance, quality, incomes and reduce costs. Standard BPMN graphical elements include the circles of different kinds for representing events, rounded rectangles — for activities, diamonds — for gateways, different arrows allowing represent the flows, and many other symbols.

The Business Process Model and Notation Solution extends ConceptDraw PRO software with templates, samples, and numerous libraries of predesigned notation symbols based on the BPMN 2.0 standard to help you easy model the business processes of any degree of complexity, document them and display using the diagrams.


There are 8 stencil libraries containing 143 vector objects in the Business Process Model and Notation solution.

Examples

The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Business Process Model and Notation Solution; they demonstrate a portion of the solution's capabilities and the professional results you can achieve.

All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw Solution Park. The Business Process Model and Notation Solution is available for all ConceptDraw PRO v10 users.

Example 4: Logistics — Choreography BPMN 2.0 Diagram

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the combination of libraries from the Business Process Model and Notation solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

Logistics is the process of management the flow of goods from the point of origin to the point of consumption with a goal to meet some requirements. BPMN diagrams allow to model, analyze, optimize and visualize effectively the logistics processes.

Example 5: Order Process — BPMN 2.0 Diagram

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the combination of libraries from the Business Process Model and Notation solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This BPMN diagram is based on the standard BPMN 2.0 and demonstrates the sequence of actions forming the order process. The orders are the stated intentions about the engaging in commercial transactions, which are used by organizations as a form of reporting the costs and revenues.
