bpmNEXT 2014: Wizard-Based Generation of “Good BPMN”, Silver, Fischli, Palumbo, BPMessentials
There are tools that let business users generate simple diagrams from an outline, but it is not real BPMN. Creating real BPMN — hierarchical models, consistently structured, that communicate clearly — is more difficult for business users. We demonstrate a wizard-based tool that generates such diagrams automatically from a simple structured interview, following the Method and Style approach.
