set of 3 Flow Objects in BPMN:

  • Events – represent something that “happens” during the course of a Process;

  • Activities – represent work undertaken within a Business Process; and

  • Gateways – control the flow within a Business Process.

Flow Objects and Event Types
02:37

A BPMN Activity is simply "Work" that a company or organization performs in a business process. An Activity is can be atomic or decomposable. There are basically three BPMN activity types:

  1. BPMN Task (atomic)

  2. BPMN Sub-Process (decomposable)

  3. BPMN Call Activity

Activities
05:53

five main types of Gateways;

  1. Event Gateway – which represents a branching point in the Process where the

alternative paths that follow the Gateway are based on Events that can occur, rather than the evaluation of an Expression;

  1. Parallel Gateway – which represents a branching point in the process where all of the paths in the process must be followed;

  2. Exclusive Gateway – which represents a branching point in the process that requires one and only one of the possible paths being chosen from the available options based on the evaluation of an Expression.

  3. Inclusive Gateway – which represents a branching point in the process that allows one or more (i.e. multiple) of the possible paths being chosen from the available options based on the evaluation of an Expression

  4. Complex Gateway – which provides the ability to support complex merging, and branching behaviour that is not captured by other Gateways.

Gateways
04:37

The three different forms of Data Items are:

Data Object – represents an item of data that is either used or created by an Activity that only

exists for the current life of the Process;

Data Store – represents a collection of data that is either used or created by an Activity that exists beyond the current life of the Process; and

Messages – represents the content of a communication that flows between two participants.


Data Objects
02:36

The two different types of Artefacts are:

Group Objects – allows flow objects to be grouped for purposes of documentation or analysis;

and

Annotation - provides additional information to elaborate an element within the process.


Artefacts
01:39

The three different types of Connecting Objects are:

Sequence Flows –shows the execution path (or order) of Process by connecting Flow Objects;

Message Flows – shows the flow of information in the form of Messages between Participants;

and

Associations – are used to attach Data objects or Artefact objects to Flow Objects, typically

Activities.

This example is about Business-To-Business-Collaboration. Because we want to model the interaction between a pizza customer and the vendor explicitly, we have classified them as “participants”, therefore providing them with dedicated pools.
