Design elements - Connections BPMN1.2

The vector stencils library "Connections BPMN1.2" contains 6 connection symbols of sequence flow, message flow, and association.
Use these shapes for drawing business process diagrams (BPMN 1.2) using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Connections.
Flow objects are connected to each other using Connecting objects, which are of three types: sequences, messages, and associations.
(1) Sequence Flow.
A Sequence Flow is represented with a solid line and arrowhead, and shows in which order the activities are performed. The sequence flow may also have a symbol at its start, a small diamond indicates one of a number of conditional flows from an activity, while a diagonal slash indicates the default flow from a decision or activity with conditional flows.
(2) Message Flow.
A Message Flow is represented with a dashed line, an open circle at the start, and an open arrowhead at the end. It tells us what messages flow across organizational boundaries (i.e., between pools). A message flow can never be used to connect activities or events within the same pool.
(3) Association.
An Association is represented with a dotted line. It is used to associate an Artifact or text to a Flow Object, and can indicate some directionality using an open arrowhead (toward the artifact to represent a result, from the artifact to represent an input, and both to indicate it is read and updated). No directionality is used when the Artifact or text is associated with a sequence or message flow (as that flow already shows the direction)." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Swimlanes BPMN1.2" contains 8 swimlane shapes for drawing business process diagrams (BPMN 1.2) using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Swim lanes are a visual mechanism of organising and categorising activities, based on cross functional flowcharting, and in BPMN consist of two types:
(1) Pool.
Represents major participants in a process, typically separating different organisations. A pool contains one or more lanes (like a real swimming pool). A pool can be open (i.e., showing internal detail) when it is depicted as a large rectangle showing one or more lanes, or collapsed (i.e., hiding internal detail) when it is depicted as an empty rectangle stretching the width or height of the diagram.
(2) 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." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Business process BPMN 1.2 (Rapid Draw)" contains 12 symbols of objects, roles swimlanes, and task icons for creating the business process diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"BPMN models consist of simple diagrams constructed from a limited set of graphical elements. For both business users and developers, they simplify understanding business activities' flow and process. BPMN's four basic element categories are:
(1) Flow objects.
Events, activities, gateways.
(2) Connecting objects.
Sequence flow, message flow, association
(3) Swim lanes.
Pool, lane.
(4) Artifacts.
Data object, group, annotation.
These four categories enable creation of simple business process diagrams (BPDs). BPDs also permit making new types of flow object or artifact, to make the diagram more understandable. ...
Task.
A task represents a single unit of work that is not or cannot be broken down to a further level of business process detail without diagramming the steps in a procedure (which is not the purpose of BPMN)." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]

"A swim lane (or swimlane) is a visual element used in process flow diagrams, or flowcharts, that visually distinguishes responsibilities for sub-processes of a business process. Swim lanes may be arranged either horizontally or vertically. In the accompanying example, the swimlanes are named Customer, Sales, Contracts, Legal, and Fulfillment, and are arranged vertically. ...
When used to diagram a business process that involves more than one department, swimlanes often serve to clarify not only the steps and who is responsible for each one, but also how delays, mistakes or cheating are most likely to occur.
Many process modeling methodologies utilize the concept of swimlanes, as a mechanism to organize activities into separate visual categories in order to illustrate different functional capabilities or responsibilities (organisational roles). Swimlanes are used in Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) and Unified Modeling Language activity diagram modeling methodologies." [Swim lane. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Gateways BPMN 1.2" contains symbols: data-based and event-based exclusive (XOR), inclusive (OR), parallel (AND), complex.
The vector stencils library "Artifacts BPMN 1.2" contains symbols: data object, text annotation, and group.
Use these shapes for creating the business process diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Gateway.
A gateway is represented with a diamond shape and determines forking and merging of paths, depending on the conditions expressed.
Exclusive.
Used to create alternative flows in a process because only one of the paths can be taken, it is called exclusive.
Event Based.
The condition determining the path of a process is based on an evaluated event.
Parallel.
Used to create parallel paths without evaluating any conditions.
Inclusive.
Used to create alternative flows where all paths are evaluated.
Exclusive Event Based.
An event is being evaluated to determine which of mutually exclusive paths will be taken.
Complex.
Used to model complex synchronization behavior.
Parallel Event Based.
Two parallel process are started based on an event but there is no evaluation of the event. ...
Artifacts allow developers to bring some more information into the model/diagram. In this way the model/diagram becomes more readable. There are three pre-defined Artifacts and they are:
(1) Data objects: Data objects show the reader which data is required or produced in an activity.
(2) Group: A Group is represented with a rounded-corner rectangle and dashed lines. The group is used to group different activities but does not affect the flow in the diagram.
(3) Annotation: An annotation is used to give the reader of the model/diagram an understandable impression." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Choreographies" contains 28 symbols of choreography tasks, collapsed and expanded choreography sub-processes for drawing business process diagrams (BPMN 2.0).
"Choreography – Tasks performed by
participants and how participants
coordinate interactions via messages. ...
BPMN Choreography.
(1) Sequence of interactions between Participants.
(2) Choreographies exist outside of or in between Pools.
(3) A Choreography Task is an atomic Activity in a Choreography Process.
(4) The task represents an Interaction, which is one or two Message exchanges between two Participants.
(5) Helps to show who initiates the activity and the first message." [omg.org/news/meetings/workshops/SOA-HC/presentations-2011/14_MT-2_Brookshier.pdf]
