This process diagram represents the sequence of activities within a process. Process modeling formalizes practices and describes how they should be carried out. A process diagram comprises activities, events, and gateways placed in a flow sequence by a sequence flow. Flow objects are a collection of activities, events, and gateways. Process participants, activity sequences, information exchanged during a process, and trigger events are all represented by flow diagrams. Processes can also describe the various checks, options, and coordination within a series of activities.
