Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is a diagramming notation for business process models. It is emerging as the largest, most widely accepted business process modeling in the industry. BPMN creates a functional flow chart of different processes.
Web Modelers can assign the BPMN properties to Flow Objects when mapping processes on Graph Edit Mode to define business process behaviors.
