Calculation Details

BPMN is a large and complex standard.  In several cases, different constructs have identical behavior.  Consider the 2 process fragments below.  They behave identically, but look very different.  

Implicit Gateway: 
Explicit Gateway: 
Discussion: 

Since these behave identically, it is essential that any metric calculation yield the same values.  Unfortunately, the published measures do not consider these complexities.  

This is just one example of the transformations that we apply before analyzing the complexitty of BPMN processes.  We have developed a set of transforms which remove all ambiguity from the processes before analyzing them.  This ensures consistent and correct measurement, independent of individual modeling styles.   All details are described in the documentattion provided with the process analysis.
