An event has been organised for delegates to learn about Workflows and Business Process Modelling Notation on Thursday the 22nd of March, at Austin Court in Birmingham.

The event is FREE (normally the fee for this kind of workshop would be several hundred pounds!), you just have to organise your own travel and accommodation to the venue.

The closing date is the 15th of March for bookings, please do not miss this opportunity to attend this very useful workshop.

The workshop is being delivered by the excellent Professor Balbir Barn who has a research background in methodologies and software application development toolsets including business process modelling toolsets. Prior to academia, he worked extensively on Component Based Development methods and design of component modelling toolsets at Texas Instruments Research Labs. Balbir was the lead investigator on the COVARM project - a recently completed project funded by JISC to explore the potential automation of elements of the course / programme validation business process within the Higher Education sector.

This workshop introduces delegates to the basic principles and concepts underlying business process modelling and workflow. The importance of business process modelling and its role in the design of software systems will be emphasised. This workshop will provide coverage of the OMG Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN). Delegates will be taken through the use of BPMN using case study and a set of exercises from a familiar domain. Case studies from the Repository, e-Science and e-Framework Programmes will be used to contextualise the proposed methods and notations described in this workshop.

The learning outcomes are as follows:

  1. Principles, concepts and techniques of business process modelling and workflow;
  2. The role of workflow and process models in the analysis, design and implementation of information systems;
  3. The OMG standard - Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN).
  4. Applying the BPM Notation to defining and describing workflow.
  5. Alternate technologies and notations for workflow modelling through case study analysis.
