    I appreciate your perfect understanding of my questions / suggestions and the relevance and usefulness of your answers.

    I agree that events need not themselves present inputs to the processes understudy but I take that design of a process must make provision to detect events of interest / impact and generate inputs for processing (if the events themselves do not).

    I agree that the nature of processing is different in “activities” and “gateways” but that is a sub-classification of 'process' which essentially act on inputs and produce output.

    I see that you are explaining these in terms of tokens. There must be some advantage of 'tokens' but I have grown to like the “flow of things” to be simpler and direct. Because of you I am willing to learn 'tokens' and see how they compare with 'flow of things' to model processes comprehensively and yet simply.

  • jimarlow jimarlow @putchavn here is what the BPMN 2 Specification says about events:

    'An Event is something that “happens” during the course of a Process. These Events affect the flow of the Process and usually have a cause or an impact. The term “event” is general enough to cover many things in a Process. The start of an Activity, the end of an Activity, the change of state of a document, a Message that arrives, etc., all could be considered Events. However, BPMN has restricted the use of Events to include only those types of Events that will affect the sequence or timing of Activities of a Process.'. Section 8.3.5 page 83.

    I think this agrees quite well with what you have said except that according to this definition an event doesn't necessarily constitute an actual data input to a process.

    With regard to activities and gateways being the same KIND - I guess it depends what you mean by kind - but they certainly have very different behaviour. An Activity specifies something that happens in the process (for example, change of an order status), whereas a Gateway simply consumes and emits tokens.

  • putchavn Putcha Narasimham, Founder Professor & Proprietor--Coach & Consultant at Knowledge Enaber Systems Ref Slide 37:

    AA Can we take that 'event' is 'something that happens externally which generates an output'. That output then becomes an input to any of the processes under consideration. The nature of 'event' is a 'process', except that it is external to what we are engaged with and what is important is to be able to 'detect that event and use it as an input'. So, event is something that generates input to the process under consideration.

    BB Secondly, 'Activity' and 'what happens in a gateway' are of the same KIND. That is, both are process steps or activities that accept input and generate output.

    CC I am saying this to reduce the essentials of a process to 1 Activity or 2 something that flows from an activity to another activity. 1 and 2 are mutually exclusive.

    DD There may be many types of 1 and 2. and one may classify and treat them appropriately but for basic understanding CC should suffice. Then process representation, analysis and design can be simplified, clarified and improved.
