Designation of activities as a job description



The naming of activities should always be used as a description of an activity to clarify what happens. Just mentioning the activity itself is not enough.


This rule relates to the naming of activities (tasks) in the process flow. For example, it is not enough to define "invoice verification" - what should happen here? Carry out invoice verification, approve invoice verification, document invoice verification, etc.? Such a description of activities significantly increases the readability and thus the usability of the process diagram.





When using the Signavio Process Editors can define these modeling conventions with the appropriate licensing in the system and then check them at the push of a button or when saving a process diagram.
