What is the difference between flow charts and BPMN?

I’ve been working with different projects and when we start modelling business processes, I’ve heard people calling them flowcharts. But, why are they calling processes flow charts? They are much more than just flow charts. How do I tell them that? OK, let me start from the foundation.

What is a flow chart? A flow chart is a type of diagram that graphically represents a process.  Hum, I’m also using diagrams to graphically represent processes.

Should-I-have-a-cookie-flow-chart

And am I doing flow charts? When I’m modelling processes at a high-level (descriptive modelling) and communicating it across the organisation, I’m definitely taking advantage of flowcharting. But I am using another notation, not flow charts. I use BPMN, (Business Process Model and Notation), a standard notation for business process modelling.

What am I doing differently? In flow charts, there are no set of agreed symbols. There are certainly commonly used symbols, but each one is free to create diagrams the way they see fit. Now, modelling business process with BPMN, I’m not worried that each model I come across in the organisation is using its own set of symbols (drawn in Visio, for instance). That, for one, makes it easier to compare models done across the organisation.

Here is an example of a business process using BPMN at a descriptive level:

bpm-analysis-initiate-project

But am I going beyond flow charts? First, with BPMN, I use more elements than those in a high-level flow chart (descriptive layer). I include more complex business process patterns, such as those with exceptions, decisions and events. With these models, I can create, among other things, detailed requirements for IT development. Second, with Aris Business Architect/Designer or another BPMS (Business Process Management Suite), I take advantage of a modelling repository, where I can reuse activities in different processes. Third, with enterprise architecture, I consider other organisational aspects beyond ordering of activities, such as related systems, resources allocation, indicators, etc.

Anything else? Flow charts have not evolved in terms of the notation, while BPMN is a notation defined by a group composed of companies highly engaged with the evolution of business process modelling. Using a standard like BPMN, you have a set of rules that are the foundation for modelling business process models understandable by a wider audience, rather than ad-hoc flow charts that lack an agreed set of modelling rules.

New Journal: Evaluating a graphical notation for modelling software development methodologies

We are happy to share with you that our paper entitled “Evaluating a graphical notation for modelling software development methodologies” has been published on Elsevier’s Journal of Visual Languages and Computing. This paper is the result of the joint work of Kenia Sousa, Jean Vanderdonckt, Brian Henderson-Sellers and Cesar Gonzalez-Perez in the last years.

This work evaluated a graphical notation that supports the ISO/IEC 24744 standard, a metamodel composed of key concepts for development methodologies. This graphical notation has a set of common symbols that can be used to specify software (and other kinds of) development methodologies (e.g. a customisation of RUP, an agile method, etc.).

We have evaluated the elements and diagrams of the notation using the Cognitive Dimensions Framework. This framework aids in delivering a standard evaluation of the usability of information artefacts along different dimensions to cover several aspects of the notation.

As a result of this evaluation, we suggested improvements to this notation in order to enhance its expressiveness and, consequently, the communication between the stakeholders who define and read/apply the methodologies.

The paper is available on Elsevier’s Journal of Visual Languages & Computing. If you are doing research on the field, please take this paper into consideration and do not hesitate to ask your questions.

Call for proposals for short courses – IHC – CLIHC’2011

You can already find the official call for papers for the joint conference IHC – CLIHC’2011 that will take place on October 26-28, 2011 in Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco, Brazil.

I’d also like to share more detailed information about the call for proposals for short courses that will take place in the joint conference IHC – CLIHC’2011.

SHORT COURSES

Short courses or tutorials offer a valuable opportunity for the dissemination of HCI as a whole, considering topics of interest to the community linked to Information Technology and Communication and may address any of the non-exclusive aspects covered by the joint conference theme. They may be targeted at students, professionals and researchers, with durations ranging from one or two 4-hour sessions (morning or afternoon) that run in parallel with the conference program. Accepted Proposals for short courses will be published in the Proceedings of the event and the call for the courses will be posted on this site.

A course proposal must be submitted via the conference submission system EasyChair. Tutorial proposals are limited to 4 pages using the ACM SIGCHI Conference format. The course proposal must be submitted as a single PDF file containing information about the instructor(s): name, affiliation, experience; and about the course: title, brief description, objectives, attractiveness of the subject, content, activity plan, intended audience, duration (half day or full day), and audio/visual needs.

Course proposals will be reviewed by researchers from the community or communities the course targets. Courses will be selected based on quality of presentation, adherence to the conference theme, relevance to the audience, prior experience of the instructor(s), etc.

The conference organizers will provide data projectors and projection screens in the room, assist with room organization (e.g. flip charts for group presentations, arranging room for group activities), and distribute the material to attendees (e.g. print copies of slides for annotation during the course).

Coordinators:

Eduardo Calvillo – Universidad Politécnica de San Luis Potosí: Mexico
Kenia Sousa – Intrasoft International: Belgium

Important Dates:

  • 17/06/11 – deadline for proposal submission
  • 22/07/11 – notification of results
  • 05/08/11 – deadline of final version for publication in the proceedings

Joint conference IHC – CLIHC’2011

We are happy to announce the preliminary call for papers to the joint conference IHC – CLIHC’2011 that puts together the Brazilian and the Latin American communities of Human-Computer Interaction. Of course, inviting the international community to participate! This year’s theme is “From personal computers to folk computing”. It puts into perspective how using computers is becoming so intrinsic to our daily lives and how we can think of ways to use it to our favor. Lots of interesting ideas will certainly arise from these four days of discussions enlightened by the sun in Porto de Galinhas.

I’m honored to have been invited to work with the program committee  as a tutorial co-chair. This is an initiative to help  young researchers actively participate in the community. I’ve started working and I’ll keep you updated with the news. Now, take a look at the preliminary call for papers.

X Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computing IHC 2011
V Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction CLIHC 2011
Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco, Brazil, October 25-28 2011

CONFERENCE DATES AND VENUE

Pre-conference events: Oct 25, 2011
Conference dates: Oct 26-28, 2011
Venue: Porto de Galinhas, PE

Submission: June 3, 2011 – 11:59 PM Brasilia Time – strict deadline -

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Alex Repennig (University of Colorado, Boulder – USA)
Jesús Favela (Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada – Mexico)

THEME

The joint conference theme is FROM PERSONAL COMPUTERS TO FOLK COMPUTING, which explicitly evokes not only the speedy evolution of context in the users experience with computers (from the individual to the collective and societal), but also a leap in the knowledge level required from users to take full advantage of widely available resources in Web 2.0 (from knowing about computers to knowing about computing). In the not-so-distant past, full citizenship depended on being literate with Maths and Language in order to use numbers and words efficiently to achieve one’s individual and collective goals in society. Now, this depends more and more on being literate with Computers, and using programs to express and achieve our social and civil goals, with the Internet enabling new forms for communities and societies.

The conference organizers invite the Brazilian, the Latin American and the International HCI communities to discuss the role of HCI researchers and practitioners in developing interactive technologies that truly promote Computing Literacy. We are interested in discussing the users’ needs, expectations, experiences and possibilities while using computers and computing to participate fully in social and civil activities supported by computer systems. In the context of Latin America, where this conference takes place, we are especially interested in discussing how HCI can promote and bring about increased levels of social development.

Contributions to the conference program should address one of the following non-exclusive aspects of moving FROM PERSONAL COMPUTERS TO FOLK
COMPUTING:

  • Accessibility and therapeutic uses of interaction
  • Adaptive, adaptable, intelligent user interfaces
  • Affective computing
  • Augmented reality
  • Computational literacy
  • Context-aware interaction
  • Effects of aging on interacting with computers
  • End user programming and development
  • Ergonomics
  • HCI and citizenship
  • HCI design – methods, tools and perspectives
  • HCI education
  • HCI evaluation – methods, tools and perspectives
  • HCI impacts on society: social life, health, education, transportation, sports, environment, etc.
  • HCI theories and theoretical approaches
  • Human-robot interaction
  • Integrating HCI and Software Engineering
  • Interacting with information visualizations
  • Interacting with new devices
  • Interaction and information processing
  • Interfaces for mobile and ambient systems
  • Internationalization and cultural aspects of HCI
  • Iteraction and entertainment
  • Legal issues in HCI
  • Multimodal interfaces
  • Natural user interfaces
  • Organic user interfaces
  • Social interaction (virtual and online communities)
  • Speech interfaces
  • Tactile interfaces
  • Task ad user analysis
  • Usable privacy and security tools
  • Web interfaces
