In this paper an evaluation of BPMN is presented, using the Workflow Patterns as an analysis framework. The analysis provided for BPMN is part of a larger effort aiming at an unbiased and vendor-independent survey of the expressive power of some mainstream modelling languages for process-aware information systems. It is a sequel to an analysis series where languages like BPEL and UML 2.0 A.D were evaluated. The results from the survey could both be used for the selection of a modelling technique, as well as for motivation and input to further development of any of the surveyed languages.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
