The vector stencils library "Gateways BPMN 1.2" contains symbols: data-based and event-based exclusive (XOR), inclusive (OR), parallel (AND), complex.
The vector stencils library "Artifacts BPMN 1.2" contains symbols: data object, text annotation, and group.
Use these shapes for creating the business process diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
A gateway is represented with a diamond shape and determines forking and merging of paths, depending on the conditions expressed.
Used to create alternative flows in a process because only one of the paths can be taken, it is called exclusive.
The condition determining the path of a process is based on an evaluated event.
Used to create parallel paths without evaluating any conditions.
Used to create alternative flows where all paths are evaluated.
Exclusive Event Based.
An event is being evaluated to determine which of mutually exclusive paths will be taken.
Used to model complex synchronization behavior.
Parallel Event Based.
Two parallel process are started based on an event but there is no evaluation of the event. ...
Artifacts allow developers to bring some more information into the model/diagram. In this way the model/diagram becomes more readable. There are three pre-defined Artifacts and they are:
(1) Data objects: Data objects show the reader which data is required or produced in an activity.
(2) Group: A Group is represented with a rounded-corner rectangle and dashed lines. The group is used to group different activities but does not affect the flow in the diagram.
(3) Annotation: An annotation is used to give the reader of the model/diagram an understandable impression." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]
The example "Design elements - Gateways and artifacts BPMN 1.2" is included in the Business Process Diagram solution from the Business Processes area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
