Improve your efficiency and productivity with the strategic use of BPMN models
BPMN is a graphical notation for process modeling and describing business processes in a business process diagram (BPD). As an essential component of BPM, it enables organizations - irrespective of company size or industry - to visualize and optimize their business processes. By utilizing this modeling language, working steps are represented consistently and thus easily comprehensible for all process participants. It aims to facilitate business process management for both technical and business users, analysts, technical developers, and business managers adopting a similar language for describing processes and preventing communication gaps that may occur between business process design and implementation. Thus, the communication of processes is simplified across the entire organization. BPMN was developed in 2001. After numerous revisions, the Object Management Group® (OMG) published BPMN 2.0 in 2010. The metamodel also includes an execution semantics that can be utilized for the technical automation using a process engine.
With the help of professional software, the Business Process Model and Notation provides considerable added value for organizations. BPMN 2.0.1 has also been established as a norm (ISO/IEC 19510:2013). It is meant to be utilized directly by stakeholders involved in designing, managing, and implementing business processes while also being accurate enough to enable the conversion of BPMN diagrams into software process components. To sum it up: BPMN offers an intuitive notation that resembles a flowchart and is independent of any specific implementation environment.
