Design elements - Gateways BPMN 2.0
The vector stencils library "Gateways" contains 8 symbols of exclusive, event-based, parallel, inclusive and complex gateways.
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." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]
