Business Process Modeling Notation
The key to an effective and smoothly run business is the efficiency and cohesive integration of its business processes. A business process describes the steps taken to complete any objective, task or service within a business. Processes can be divided into three distinct categories:
- Management processes — processes that describe business strategy and organizational structure.
- Operational processes — interaction between business and customer, core business activity.
- Supporting processes — e.g. health and safety, accounting, recruitment.
The Business Process Diagram solution gives you the ability to swiftly specify business processes based on BPMN 2.0.
