Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN)¶
The Signavio Support Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) can activate Signavio Process Manager’s CMMN support on request.
CMMN is a relatively new notation, first published in 2014, that was created to allow more flexibility in the business process landscape. Signavio supports CMMN version 1.1.
In a business process that has variation, it may be more efficient for a case worker to determine the sequence in which to perform a set of tasks. For example, a hotel guest may always go through the same process when checking in and checking out, while the regularly tasks to clean the room may vary from day to day.
In general, many BPM scenarios include actions that may diverge from the common sequence flow, within a framework of set tasks. CMMN supports the flexibility of these workflows. The notation is designed for scenarios when a case worker can decide in what order tasks or sequence flows shall be performed. A CMMN sequence flow may be triggered by an event (event listener), a state (milestone) or with an action (task).
