We provide you with a BPMN 2.0 Short Reference and examples and would like to give you useful tips for using BPMN in Enterprise Architect. You will also find links to further information here.

Understand BPMN as a standard! It is therefore very important to adhere to the meaning of the symbols specified in the specification. An overly individual interpretation of this standard can easily lead to misinterpretations of the target audience. For a uniform application of the various constructs, it is important to familiarize all persons involved in the modeling (analysts, modellers, target persons) with the BPMN symbols and to train them with tailor-made training.

Use BPMN for what it was made for, namely to model processes!

Since BPMN contains a large number of – sometimes even more technical – symbols, it is advisable to make a suitable selection of symbols for your purpose and make them binding at the beginning of the modeling (you will find an exemplary modeling guideline in the link collection below).
