Business Process Elements: Swimlanes
Design Elements: Swimlanes
Swimlanes are a visual mechanism of organising and categorising activities, based on cross functional flowcharting, and in BPMN consist of two types:
- Pool: represents major participants in a process, typically separating different organisations. A pool contains one or more lanes (like a real swimming pool)
- Lane: used to organise and categorise activities within a pool according to function or role, and depicted as a rectangle stretching the width or height of the pool. A lane contains the flow objects, connecting objects and artifacts.
ConceptDraw has 142 vector stencils in the 8 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing own Business Process Diagrams. Use Swimlanes library with 20 objects from BPMN.
