Business Process Modeling

  1. Business Process Modeling (BPM)

Business Process Modeling (BPM) is a business process management methodology that helps organizations improve their processes and make them more effective. BPM is based on the idea that any organization’s processes consist of activities that need to be performed in order to achieve organizational goals. These activities are often interdependent and require coordination between people and/or systems. In addition, these activities may have sub-activities that need to be completed before they can start.

  1. Business Process Execution Language (BPEL)

BPEL is a language developed by OASIS to describe business processes. BPEL defines how business processes should be executed by specifying the interactions between participants and tasks. It uses XML documents to define the structure of a process.

  1. Business Process Specification Language (BPSL)

BPSL is a language designed specifically for describing business processes. It was created by IBM in 2002. BPSL is similar to BPEL in that it describes business processes using XML documents. However, BPSL focuses more on the business rules that govern the execution of those processes rather than the actual steps involved.

  1. Business Process Management (BPMN)

BPMN is a graphical notation for modeling business processes. It is a standard published by Object Management Group (OMG). It is widely accepted as a way to represent business processes visually. BPMN provides a visual representation of the workflow of a business process.

  1. Business Process Execution Environment (BPXE)

BPXE is a software application that enables users to create, edit, execute, monitor, and manage business processes. It supports both BPEL and BPMN.

  1. Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) 2.0

BPMN 2.0 is a specification released by OMG in 2010. It is a superset of BPMN 1.x. It adds additional features to the original BPMN specification.

  1. Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL4WS)

BPEL4WS is a web services extension of BPEL. It allows for the definition of web service flows.

What are the advantages of business process modelling

Business Process Modelling (BPM) is a method of representing processes in terms of activities, events, tasks, and information flows. BPM helps to improve the efficiency of business operations by providing a visual representation of how work gets done. Business Process Modeling is a way of describing the flow of information between people, groups, organizations, and/or computers.

The primary purpose of modeling is to provide a means of communicating about the business processes of an organization. A model provides a framework for understanding the structure and function of a system. Models may be static or dynamic. Static models describe a system at a single point in time. Dynamic models show how a system changes over time.
