BPMN and the Business Process Expert, Part 2: Mastering the Notation
This article offers a brief summary of the BPMN notation. BPMN describes process orchestration in terms of activities (tasks and subprocesses) connected by sequence flows. Branches, splits, and joins in the flow are modeled by various gateway types. Events specify how processes respond to signals received from external entities or other parts of the same process. Other parts of the notation are loosely specified and used to add business context only. This article is the second of six parts.
