Example of a Business Process Event Deadline

Business process event deadlines alert the business process owner of events such as inventory levels or shipment dates.

If a business process deadline is reached when it is executing a service that consumes a lot of time or if the business process was stopped by an error or terminated, the deadlines may not be issued and the business process owner may not be alerted. This could cause businesses to run out of inventory or miss shipments, eventually impacting their bottom line profits. In this case, you might want to set up an event listener, so that you are notified when the inventory is low.
