Business Process

Extend a composite Activity that defines a business process.

BPEL Process

Define the behavior of an executable or abstract business process.

Activity

Represents work that is performed within a Business Process. An Activity can be modeled as a:

  • Sub-Process - a compound Activity that is defined as a flow of other BPMN 1.1 elements or
  • Task - an atomic Activity that cannot be broken down into a smaller unit

As a sub-process, the Activity can be made a composite element that links to a child diagram containing the flow of other BPMN elements.

Composite Elements

Start Event

Define the initiating event in a process.

Intermediate Event

Define an intermediate event in a process.

End Event

Define the terminating event in a process.

Gateway

Define a decision point in a business process.

If a condition is true, then processing continues one way; if not, then another.

Pool

Extend a Partition element to logically organize an Activity.

Lane

Extend a Partition element to subdivide a Pool.

Data Object

Extend an Artifact element to define a physical piece of information used or produced by a system.
