Modeling diagrams

This section explains the use of the Editor with different notations.

  • In the chapter Basic modeling with the Editor, you can learn basic modeling features that are the same in every notation. If you are unfamiliar with process modeling, we recommend that you start here and then continue to the chapter about the notation you will be using.
  • Value chains often represent an internal top level of complex process hierarchies. In contrast, customer journey maps depict a customer’s perspective on a product or service that contains specific touch points that link customer experience with process architecture.
  • The chapter Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) explains how to model BPMN diagrams in the Editor.
  • The QuickModel application lets you model BPMN 2.0 diagrams without requiring BPMN knowledge. In addition, QuickModel’s spreadsheet-like interface is very convenient for systematically filling in attribute values of BPMN elements.
  • The chapter Decision Modeling and Notation (DMN 1.0) helps you model decision diagrams in the Signavio Decision Manager. It is also possible to simulate decisions and define and execute test case for DMN decision logic.
  • Enterprise architecture diagrams enable you to visualize your corporate IT system architecture within and across business domains. You can learn how to model in the chapter ArchiMate.
  • In addition, Process Manager supports a set of other notations that are of lesser importance in practical process management scenarios.
