Method and Style Wizard Generates BPMN Automatically

By | 2014-05-20T16:23:52-07:00 May 20th, 2014|BPMN, bpmnPRO|

itp commerce has just released a new BPMN Method and Style wizard that automatically creates well-structured BPMN from a simple interview.  In my BPMN training, the "Method" is the hardest part because it asks students to describe the process top-down and abstractly, as opposed to the bottom-up "what came next?" format of the SME fact-finding.  [...]

BPMN and CMMN Compared

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:01-08:00 May 14th, 2014|BPMN|

IBM's presentation at bpmNEXT of their implementation of case management inside of BPMN (and their subsequent launch of same at Impact) inspired Paul Harmon to start a lively thread on BPTrends on whether BPMN and CMMN should be merged.  To me the answer is an obvious "yes," but I doubt it will happen anytime soon.  [...]

BPMN as an Execution Language

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:01-08:00 April 4th, 2014|BPMN, BPMS|

One of the reasons that BPMN so quickly displaced BPEL in the BPM space is it had a graphical notation that exactly mirrored the semantic elements. What you see is what you get.  So whenBPMN 2.0 changed the acronym to Business Process Model and Notation, I stubbornly refused to acknowledge the "and".  For me it [...]

More on Indirect Call Activity

By | 2014-04-04T12:32:13-07:00 April 4th, 2014|BPMN|

In a recent post I discussed the utility of allowing the calledElement attribute of a BPMN Call Activity to be an expression that evaluates to a QName (in BPMN's special usage, a prefixed id) rather than a literal QName value.  Tom Debevoise asked what that might look like in the XML and I offered something [...]

BPMN: Seeking Indirection

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:01-08:00 March 20th, 2014|BPMN|

A frequent complaint about BPMN is that it cannot adequately describe many common business process scenarios, particularly when all possible flow paths are not known in advance.  Actually, it can handle a good number of those, but many fall into a "gray area" - patterns that may or may not be technically allowed, depending on [...]
