Business Process Management and Notation 2.0 (BPMN 2.0) is the current modeling standard used to map business processes in a business process model.

BPMN 2.0 is the latest version of the standard, developed by the Object Management Group (OMG®) with the aim of producing a unified modeling language that is comprehensible for all business users and bridges the gap between business process design and implementation.

Due to being optimal for modern process modeling, it has become one of the most popular modeling languages. With the Signavio Process Editor you can enjoy the benefits of BPMN 2.0 and model even complex processes.

Modeling with BPMN 2.0

BPMN 2.0 models are constructed from graphical elements representing different parts of the process. The core elements consist of activities, events and gateways that are linked with arrows depicting the sequence flow. The result is similar in technique to flowcharting.

These elements are modeled on swimlanes, representing the roles and responsibilities in the process with the pool as an organizational unit and the lanes as departments or individuals.

Why BPMN 2.0?

The clear representation of organizational structures and responsibilities in pools and swimming lanes, makes BPMN 2.0 easy to comprehend at first glance. It not only offers diverse possibilities for modeling experts but is also the ideal tool for those who only model occasionally or even beginners. Events, activities and gateway symbols are laid out in logical categories so the functions are easy to learn.

As with most processes, collaboration is the key to successful documentation and execution of projects. Business processes often cannot be modeled using a central interface. BPMN 2.0 is the ideal opportunity to actively involve all those participating in the process in the modeling. Business models can also be transported to execution languages such as BPEL.
