Regardless of whether you prefer to map your processes with Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), as a flow chart or in swim lanes, with viflow you can model your processes exactly as you wish.

That’s because viflow is both easy and flexible.

Swimlane

Swimlanes are the standard modelling method in viflow. A key feature of the swim lane method is the ability to map processes quickly in a readily comprehensible and structured manner. This essentially results in three views of the process: the activity layer (process view), the information layer (data view) and the organisation layer (area view).

Turtle

A Turtle Chart is a form of process representation similar to a process data sheet. The essential input factors of a process – such as inputs, required documents, participants and material resources – are depicted graphically. This helps users obtain an overall view of the depicted process.

Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN)

BPMN enables the graphical modelling of business processes from an economic perspective using standardised and comprehensive notation. The Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) was developed by the Business Process Management Initiative (BPMI).

Using viflow BPMN stencils, you can convert a business model (simple representation) to this notation.

Flowchart

Depicting a process as a flow chart is a graphical analysis method. A flow chart makes complex processes easier to understand by depicting the underlying structure and the relationships between the elements step by step in graphical form.
