About the Specification

Title:
Business Process Model and Notation
Acronym:
BPMN™
Version:
2.0.2
Description:
The primary goal of BPMN is to provide a notation that is readily understandable by all business users, from the business analysts that create the initial drafts of the processes, to the technical developers responsible for implementing the technology that will perform those processes, and finally, to the business people who will manage and monitor those processes. Thus, BPMN creates a standardized bridge for the gap between the business process design and process implementation. Another goal, but no less important, is to ensure that languages designed for the execution of business processes can be visualized with a business-oriented notation. This specification represents the amalgamation of best practices within the business modeling community to define the notation and semantics of Collaboration diagrams, Process diagrams, and Choreography diagrams. The intent of BPMN is to standardize a business process model and notation in the face of many different modeling notations and viewpoints. In doing so, BPMN provides a simple means of communicating process information to other business users, process implementers, customers, and suppliers.
