Although BPMN is widely accepted as the language of choice for business process diagrams, few process modelers know how to use it correctly or effectively. If you fall into that category, then this book is for you. It is divided into two easy to follow sections:
- BPMN Method and Style
- BPMN Implementer's Guide
The fully updated BPMN Method and Style section explains the shapes and symbols you need to know, and which ones you can ignore. It provides a prescriptive, top-down methodology for turning a blank page into a complete process model. By also providing the elements of BPMN style, principles of composition, your models will align correctly with the BPMN 2.0 specifications but will also be easily understood without reference to additional documentation. The Method and Style approach featured in this book allows BPMN models to be shared across the business, or between business and IT. Ideally, providing the process logic consistently and unambiguously from the diagram alone.
The second half of the book is a brand new addition to the second edition of this publication. The BPMN Implementer's Guide speaks to developers and BPMN tool vendors. It will explain:
- XML Beneath the Shapes and Symbols
- BPMN 2.0 Metamodel and Schema
- Descriptive and Analytic Process Modeling Conformance Subclasses
- BPMN-I Profile for Interoperability Between Tools
- And Much More
Few tools serialize BPMN correctly, but the Implementer's Guide shows you how, both for non-executable and executable process models alike.
