In order for a simulation to be executed, some necessary conditions must be fulfilled:

  • The syntax of the diagram has to stick to BPMN 2.0 syntax rules. The process flow must not be interrupted, for example:
The diagram must not infringe BPMN 2.0 syntax rules.

The diagram must not infringe BPMN 2.0 syntax rules.

  • Elements that affect the process flow, but cannot be clearly specified regarding their impact on the process flow, must not be used.
