The BPMN Parallel Multiple Event article focus on the definition and usage of the parallel multiple event element as documented in the BPMN 2.0 specification. The example process diagram illustrates the correct use of the parallel multiple event annotation. The BPMN Guidelines section contains a detailed set of rules that apply to the parallel multiple event and explains how the element may or may not be used within the different BPMN diagrams.
What is a Parallel Multiple Event?
“This means that there are multiple triggers REQUIRED before the Process can be instantiated. All of the types of triggers that are listed in the Start Event MUST be triggered before the Process is instantiated.” ~ BPMN Specification
The BPMN specification defines the Parallel Multiple Event element using the following description and notation:
|Catching Events||Throwing Events|
|Start Event||Intermediate Event||End Event|
|Standard||Event Sub-Process |
|Event Sub-Process |
|Parallel Multiple Event|
