Business Process Modeling Notation - BPMN
The Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is a standardized graphical notation for drawing business processes in a workflow. It provides a graphical notation for specifying business processes in a Business Process Diagram (BPD). BPMN creates a standardized bridge for the gap between the business process design and process implementation. BPMN is used to communicate a wide variety of information to a wide variety of audiences. A diagram in BPMN is assembled from a small set of core elements, making it easy for technical and non-technical observers to understand the processes involved.
BPMN was originally developed by Business Process Management Initiative (BPMI), which has since merged with the Object Management Group (OMG) in 2005. BPMN supports only those modeling concepts that are applicable to business processes. This means that other types of modeling carried out by organizations for non-business purposes will be outside the scope of BPMN. For example, the modeling of organizational structures, functional breakdowns and data models will not be a part of BPMN.
