BPMN Specification – Business Process Model and Notation

The same is true for end events, which require start events. In this example, we only used one pool and different lanes for the people involved in this process, which automatically means that we blank out the communication between those people: We always create our models with start and end events for two reasons: It is totally up to the purpose of the model and therefore a decision the modeler has to make, whether a collaboration diagram with different pools is useful, or whether one should stick to one pool with different lanes, as shown in the previous chapter.

If we do not have such a process engine, but want to model the communication between the people involved explicitly, we would have to use a collaboration diagram as described in the next chapter.


You could always draw your diagrams from top to bottom instead from left to right – the BPMN 2. We only sometimes abandon this practice with sub-processes.

If we had a process engine driving this process, that engine would assign user tasks and therefore be responsible for the communication between those people. These are the reasons:. Is it obligatory to draw BPMN diagrams horizontally?

For this reason, we use the [object] and make the [verb] passive in voice, so we write “hunger noticed. We would say “acquire groceries,” for example, not “first take care of shopping for groceries.

This diagram shows a simple process triggered by someone being hungry.


In this diagram you can find the preparing steps a hardware retailer has to fulfill before the ordered goods can actually be shipped to the customer:. The result jandbuch that someone must shop for groceries hpmn prepare a meal. Events refer to something that has already happened regardless of the process if they are catching events or as a result of the process if they are throwing events. Please note that there are no default semantics in this type of modeling, which means you can model collaboration diagrams to show the interaction between business partners, but also zoom into one company, modeling the interaction between different departments, teams or even single workers and software systems in collaboration diagrams.

Because we want to explicitly model the interaction between a pizza customer and the vendor, we habdbuch classified them as “participants”, therefore providing them with dedicated pools:.
