This course looks at the technique of business process modeling: when to use it, how to do it, and what tools to use.

It doesn’t try to teach everything about BPMN – there’s just too much to take in at one sitting, so we cover a workable, practical sub-set.
With examples and exercises to reinforce the concepts.
Topic Details


Mandatory on all courses. Just introduces the course and the approach

Outside the Process

We look at the context of processes and understand how they connect to the rest of the world, modelling inputs and outputs using Black-Box Pools

Inside the Process

Starting with the Anatomy of a Process, then looking at Notation, you will be introduced to the most important BPMN elements:Events, Activities, Gateways, Data and using Lanes and Pools

And there's more...

You will have the opportunity to explore the usefulness of other modelling options including messages, intermediate events, sub-processes, modelling with time, exceptions and modelling the unknown. We will finish the morning by thinking about how to connect your BPMN models to the rest of your organisational data

Modelling BPMN 2.0 in EA

Using the results of the exercises completed in the morning, we will explore the BPMN 2.0 implementation in EA, model the processes and discover hints and tips to make our analysis clear and, where appropriate, re-useful. (NB this session assumes delegates already have some familiarity with the Enterprise Architect UI and navigation)
