BPMN or EPC?

Before you will get the positive effects of Business Process Management, like reduced costs, improved quality, and better productivity and so on, you have to describe and notice the business processes of a company. This isn’t as easy as it seemed to be. The description should be understandable, reusable and reduce the complexity of a process in a way that can be handled but without losing any information. How can you reach this ambitious goal? A simple answer: Use a model. But that’s not the end of the story. You will find a great amount of languages and notations to describe business processes, e.g. UML 2.0 Activity Diagram, EPC, BPMN, Petri-Nets, flow chart diagram and so on. In this Blog I want to draw your attention to two encouraging representatives in the area of business process modeling: EPC (Event-driven Process Chain) and BPMN (Business Process Modeling Notation). After a short introduction in these two notations I will give you a recommendation or at least food for thought.
