Business Process Modeling using BPMN and UML

Business Modeling and IT Alignment using TOGAF, Zachman, the OMG's BPMN, UML 2, BMM and SOA standards

Business Process Modeling using BPMN and UML (2 days)


Objective : This training course aims at helping business analysts to learn to model efficiently their business processes using BPMN as well as resources that are handled by their activities. Being conducted by an agile entreprise framework, business analysts learn during this course how to use appropriate BPMN notations and business extensions of UML in order to deal with their "business requirements" and coherently drive underlying design level activities.

 Participants : Pool, Lane

 Diagram repartition on the basis of abstraction levels

 Process, Sub-Process, Activity, Task

 Events and Gateways typology,

 Synchronisations,

 Connectors, Message Flows, Data Objects,

 Best Practices,

 Case Study : Model the Business Process and establish the corresponding bridge toward an Organised Process


Advanced Elements using BPMN 2.0

 Choreography, Collaboration and Conversation Diagrams,

 Detailed events and gateway typologies,

 Interruption Management, Incident Management,

 Multi-instance Elements,

 Transaction and Compensation,

 Workflow Patterns,

 Case Study : Update the previous diagrams considering Interruption and Compensation mechanisms


Simulate and Execute BPMN Models

 Process Models Simulation,

 BPMN and BPEL,

 Exchange formats XPDL,BPDM,

 Correspondances BPMN and UML,

 BPMN tools,

 Business Analysis Monitoring (BAM),

 Case Study : Check for the previous business process correctness and adjust them

Notice : The above training-mentoring sessions are conducted interactively using Business Modeling tools in order to ensure good level of traceability between business specifications and their execution. Concepts are first explained using basic examples and are then followed by solution drafts to your own problems. After this session, we can accompany you by reviewing and validating your solutions depending on your needs.
