BPM software must be able to document, quickly and simply, all process elements, performers, flow types, pools and lanes. By clicking on the pool you are able to define its name and make comments for the documentation; the lanes in addition to these two features, determine the performers. And the tasks, you must define:
You must name the initial events, have an explanatory text, and classify them into types (message, timer, conditional, sign, multiple, parallel or normal). It is necessary to determine the conditional deviations (gateways) to imply decision making, the explanatory text for documentation and its type (exclusive, parallel, inclusive, event, complex, exclusive initial event or initial parallel event). For flows it’s necessary to point out the condition that they are following (often “yes” or “no”) and determine their type (regular, standard or conditional). There is also the intermediate events, which can be of various types (conditional, timer, message, sign, multiple, parallel or escalation), the final events should be classified (normal, message, multiple, sign escalation, cancel, offset error, closing). The business process documentation software enables documentation by just clicking on each element of the diagram.
