BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation) is an OMG standard for business process modeling that is widely adopted today. The OMG lists 62 tool vendors who offer products that support BPMN [3]. This success is based on the fact that BPMN provides a standardized graphical notation which is easy to use for business analysts, allowing them to document and communicate their business processes within their company and with their external business partners.
