The BPMN Event Subprocess article focus on the definition and usage of the event subprocess element as documented in the BPMN 2.0 specification. The example process diagram illustrates the correct use of the event subprocess. The BPMN Guidelines section contains a detailed set of rules that apply to the event subprocess and explains how the element may or may not be used within the different BPMN diagrams.
