Business Process Model & Notation™ (BPMN™)

BPMN Resource Page


OMG® has guided the standardization of BPM throughout the years. In particular, the consortium adopted the Business Process Model & Notation (BPMN) specification. BPMN acts as a common language, allowing an organization to interoperate amongst all of its stakeholders.

Business Process Model & Notation (BPMN) Task Force

The BPMN specification provides a graphical notation for specifying business processes in a Business Process Diagram. Its goal is to support BPM by providing a standard notation that is comprehensible to business users yet represents complex process semantics for technical users. The task force welcomes participants who wish to contribute.

BPMN Model Interchange Working Group (BPMN MIWG)

Currently seeking participants, BPMN MIWG will ensure the smooth interchange of BPMN models between tools that implement the standard. The interchange test framework will help tool providers iron out any wrinkles in their exchange as well as identify any ambiguities in the OMG standard, which can then be resolved by the BPMN Revision Task Force.
