Process Modeling with BPM Suite course

Communication between processes with signal type events

Signal events are used to send or receive signals within or outside the process. For this reason, they are useful for both communication between parts of the same process and between processes linked by a hierarchical relationship. In this video, we will examine the various types of signal events and their use with a step-by-step example

Presentation

Welcome to the distance course on Process Modeling with GeneXus BPM Suite!
 
In these videos, you will learn how to represent a company's business processes in order to analyze, run and improve them.
 
To carry out this activity, we will use BPMN 2.0 (Business Process Modeling Notation), a standard that provides symbols and rules that allow us to graphically represent a business process.
 
The processes will be modeled with GeneXus Business Process Modeler (GXBPM), a stand-alone tool that is included in the GeneXus Business Process Management suite and can be downloaded from here.  
 
The duration of each video is listed here.
 
For your convenience, the corresponding scripts are available on the pages of the videos.
 
We hope you make the most of these training sessions!
