Business Process Modelling


The focus in today’s software development projects is increasingly changing to ensure that business requirements are captured and managed correctly. UML Modelling is now an industry accepted method as more business analysts and developers are required to understand, create and maintain these models.

Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN)

Similar techniques to UML Modelling can also be applied to capturing, analysing and managing business processes using standards such as the Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN).

BPMN allows an organisation’s business processes to be graphically represented in a Business Process Diagram using a flowcharting method similar to activity diagrams in UML Modelling. The processes can then be analysed leading to quality and process efficiency improvements usually initiated by Business Analysts and Managers in a Change Management program.
