Finishing Your Business Process Model

A good starting point for organizing a process model is the simple linear progression of activities that forms its basis.

From there, add decision points, loops and subflows as needed, configure any activities that initiate subprocesses, and add OnFaults where appropriate. You might also find Xpath expressions and name-value pairs to be useful in the construction of your process models.

Always remember to follow the best practices for business process models.

When you have planned the structure of your process model, you must determine your document storage and tracking requirements and the appropriate settings you need to set for archiving and purging stored process data.
