What is business process modeling?
Business process modeling is a technique used to document, design and optimize business processes. Process models provide a visual representation of the stages and flow of a process that is easily understood by technical and non-technical stakeholders and helps organizations communicate official processes, improve operations and plan business process automation projects.
Identifying areas for improvement within processes leads to increased productivity.
Mapping processes allows organizations to identify differences across departments and implement best practice throughout the organization.
Process modeling supports continuous improvement allowing organizations to keep up with change.
The BPMN Process Modeling Technique
Business process modeling notation (BPMN) is a popular standard graphical notation for end-to-end process modeling that provides consistency and ensures process understanding among stakeholders across and between organizations.
BPMN diagrams use basic symbols to visualize business processes, each of which can be categorized into one of four groups: flow objects (events, activities, and gateways), connecting objects (sequence flows, message flows, and associations), swimlanes (pools and lanes), and artifacts (data objects, groups and annotations).
