A Comparison of BPMN and UML 2.0 Activity Diagrams
Interest in evaluating Business Process Modeling Languages has widespread, in part due to the increase of the number of languages available for this purpose. Several works on the evaluation of BPMLs are available. Their evaluation is mainly based on perspectives centered in modeling experts. In this paper, the authors address the readability perspective of two BPMLs (UML 2.0 and BPMN) for people not familiar with process modeling. The UML can be tailored for purposes beyond software modeling and offers Activity Diagrams for business process modeling.
