BPM Process Patterns using BPMN by Dan Atwood

Business analysts and developers new to BPM sometimes struggle with the art of discovering, modeling, understanding and explaining business processes. BPM Process patterns provide a time proven and simple technique to shorten the learning curve and improve productivity and quality of the processes designed.  The patterns described here were created using Oracle BPM's BPMN process modeling tool.

clip_image002Process patterns are example fragments of processes that show how to connect activities together to solve various and common workflow problems.  Like words that are combined to form sentences, these patterns are combined to form complete processes and illustrate some of the best thoughts on modeling business processes today.   Professor Wil van der Aalst's Workflow Patterns article written in 2002 noted that processes have common and reusable patterns.  These process patterns are broken down into these six categories that gradually grow in complexity:

    1. Procedural Patterns

    2. Advanced Branching and Synchronization Patterns

    3. Structural Patterns

    4. Multiple Instance Patterns

    5. State Based Patterns

    6. Cancellation Patterns

Procedural Patterns

Sequence Pattern

This is the most common and obvious of all the patterns. When business analysts begin to model the way things work today ("As-Is" process) usually much of the process looks like activities strung together in a series. Instances (individual items of work flowing through the process) step through the activities one by one. Read the complete article here.

New Self-paced Oracle BPM 11g Training for Business People by Dan Atwood

Just wanted to let you know that AVIO has come out with a completely new online self-paced version of the Oracle BPM 11g Designer Workshop. This is a unique Oracle BPM training offering specifically designed for business analysts and managers, and it is the result of our experience from dozens of successful Oracle BPM engagements. For the last 14 years, I’ve conducted this business oriented workshop in a variety of forms - training hundreds of business people on this version of the product and every preceding version of the product.
It's different than any other Oracle BPM training because:

  • It's self-paced and flexible
    • You have two weeks to complete the hands-on portion of the training.
    • It is on-demand. You can start whenever you have time and there are no formal scheduled start and end dates.
    • Once you register, you can view the videos and do the hands-on lessons any time during the day or night that your schedule allows during the two weeks.
    • The hands-on portion of the training is done using a dedicated environment I will have running for you on an Amazon EC2 instance on the cloud with the latest version of Oracle BPM 11g already installed on it.
  • Although it is online virtual training, AVIO has a mentor available to help answer questions and assist with the lessons during the two weeks.
  • There are 4 hours of videos that accompany each lesson designed to teach both the core concepts and best practices that business people need to know on an Oracle BPM project.
  • The 12 hands-on lessons all reinforce the best practices and ensure that you leave with the knowledge you will need on your first project (click here to see a description of the 12 hands-on lessons in the class).
