BPMN2 — Confusion about Performers and other roles that Resources play for Activities

  • Key: BPMN2-225
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14832
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: BPM Advantage Consulting ( Dr. Stephen White)
  • Summary:

    Should Performers be reusable--at least within a Process? How do tools add additional types of Resource/Activity Roles (e.g., overseer, manager, etc.)? Are the current extension mechanisms sufficient?
    Should Performer be a sub-class of ActivityResource or referenced by it?

  • Disposition: Resolved — BPMN 2.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    The ActivityResource/Performer are not reusable, the Resource element referenced by them is. This schema allows most of reuse use cases.
    So the FTF conclusion is to close with no change, since there is no change needed.
    Disposition: Closed, No Change
