IDEF0 method, IDEF0 notation
IDEF0 Diagrams visualize system models using the Integration Definition for Function Modeling (IDEF) methodology. Use them for analysis, development and integration of information and software systems, and business process modelling.

Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) Diagram Software

An EPC diagram is a type of flowchart used in business process analysis. It shows different business processes through various work flows. The workflows are shown as processes and events that are related to different executes and tasks that allow business workflow to be completed.
An EPC diagram shows different business processes through various workflows. The workflows are seen as functions and events that are connected by different teams or people, as well as tasks that allow business processes to be executed. The best thing about this type of enterprise modelling is that creating an EPC diagram is quick and simple as long as you have the proper tool. One of the main usages of the EPC diagrams is in the modelling, analyzing and re-engineering of business processes. With the use of the flowchart, businesses are able to see inefficiencies in the processes and modify to make them more productive. Event-driven process chain diagrams are also used to configure an enterprise resource pla

"BPM life-cycle.
Business process management activities can be grouped into six categories: vision, design, modeling, execution, monitoring, and optimization.
Functions are designed around the strategic vision and goals of an organization. Each function is attached with a list of processes. Each functional head in an organization is responsible for certain sets of processes made up of tasks which are to be executed and reported as planned. Multiple processes are aggregated to function accomplishments and multiple functions are aggregated to achieve organizational goals." [Business process management. Wikipedia]
The arrow donut chart example "BPM life cycle" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Circular Arrows Diagrams solution from the area "What is a Diagram" of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Project —Task Trees and Dependencies

Users new to ConceptDraw PROJECT will find the Basic lessons an essential platform for familiarizing themselves with the program′s functions. This video lesson will teach you how to set up task trees and dependencies.
This example of a Top Level Context Diagram for an information system management process was redesigned from the Wikipedia file: IDEF Top-Level Context Diagram.jpg. [ wiki/ File:IDEF_ Top-Level_ Context_ Diagram.jpg]
"Graphical notation.
IDEF0 is a model that consists of a hierarchical series of diagrams, text, and glossary cross referenced to each other. The two primary modeling components are:
(1) functions (represented on a diagram by boxes), and
(2) data and objects that interrelate those functions (represented by arrows).
... the position at which the arrow attaches to a box conveys the specific role of the interface. The controls enter the top of the box. The inputs, the data or objects acted upon by the operation, enter the box from the left. The outputs of the operation leave the right-hand side of the box. Mechanism arrows that provide supporting means for performing the function join (point up to) the bottom of the box.
The IDEF0 process.
The IDEF0 process starts with the identification of the prime function to be decomposed. This function is identified on a “Top Level Context Diagram,” that defines the scope of the particular IDEF0 analysis. ... From this diagram lower-level diagrams are generated." [IDEF0. Wikipedia]
