BPMN — Is it really the Complete Set?

  • Key: BPMN-20
  • Legacy Issue Number: 9356
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Capability Measurement ( Karl Frank)
  • Summary:

    Section 8.2 is entitled "BPD Complete Set", and Table 8.3 is "BPD Complete Element Set", but the text says that that what the table displays is just "... a more extensive list" showing what "...could be depicted through a business process modeling notation". If it is really the complete set, it is misleading to describe it in this way. I guess the topic is not what could be depicted with a business process modeling notation, but rather the full extent of what is provided for with the BPMN notation as specified in this document.

    This issue suggest that the provision for extending the notation should not be scattered (as it is now) throughout the document, so that better clarity can be achieved between the notation provided in the spec, and the possiblity of user extensions of that notation. The problem now is that the possiblilty of adding new notations is getting mixed in with the purported presentation of the COMPLETE SET.
