Layout Techniques Coupled with Web2.0-Based Business Process Modeling
The most wide-spread notation for process models is the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN). With Oryx, we have a open-source modeling tool at hand that supports collaborative and web-based modeling of BPMN diagrams. Here, we show how automatic layout of diagrams can support the designer when starting to model a process in BPMN. We provide an automatic layout integrated into Oryx that computes a new layout for a given diagram considering BPMN drawing conventions, e.g. orthogonal edges, hierarchical structures, partitions, etc.
