What is Business Process Modeling? Business Process Modeling (BPM) is a Model-Based Engineering sub-discipline that specializes in Business Analysis applications. Business Process Modeling emphasizes the application of rigorous visual modeling principles and best practices to Business Analysis activities throughout the Software Development Life Cycle. These Business Analysis activities include, but are not limited to, requirements analysis, enterprise business process workflow specification, and business rule specification.
The term Business Process Modeling is popular among Business Analysts and Solution Architects who advocate the use of BPMN and UML Activity diagrams as standard visual modeling languages for specifying enterprise business process workflows, and who want to distinguish their approach from Model-Driven Development and its variants, which tend to be more software centric.
