New Capabilities for Process and Interaction Modeling in BPMN 2



Stephen White, Conrad Bock


This paper provides a high-level introduction to new features in processes and interaction diagrams in the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) Version 2.0. BPMN 2.0 expands the capabilities of BPMN 1.x Process and Collaboration diagrams, and adds Choreography diagrams for business interaction modeling. Half of the paper covers new elements in Process diagrams, including non-interrupting Events and Event Sub-Processes. The other half covers new capabilities for modeling interactions, including the use of interactive Processes with Collaborations.
