BPMN11 — Sequence Flow is not a Flow Object

  • Key: BPMN11-8
  • Legacy Issue Number: 9328
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    It seems a bit odd that a Sequence Flow is not a Flow Object as its name would appear otherwise: actually the term Flow Object is probably the one that misleads

  • Reported: BPMN 1.0b1 — Mon, 30 Jan 2006 05:00 GMT
  • Disposition: Resolved — BPMN 1.1
  • Disposition Summary:

    Close, No Change: Sequence Flow is listed as a Connecting Object, which should be considered a
    logical categorization. Given that, the use of Flow Objects for those that are connected by
    Sequence Flow also appears logical. However, a surface view of the terms might be somewhat
    confusing. However, there would be a large impact on the specification and general understanding
    of the practitioners of BPMN if the terminology was changed. Thus, this issue is out of scope for the
    RTF and may be addressed by the response to the BPMN 2.0 RFP.
