This definition is still confusing 

Hi All,

I am just doing a BPMN  process. One thing I am confused about is should I use an exclusive or inclusive Gateway for the following scenario.

 

If the form arrives with signature then go to step A

If the form arrives without signature then go to step B

At first I thought it is an exclusive gateway, but the definition for an inclusive gateway sound little bit confusing to me, especially with the lack of examples. The example I was able to see about inclusive gateway say it is used when you have 2 or more options and you can choose them both, for example Either A or A+B, so does this apply to the above scenario?

Many thanks

Adam

Re: This definition is still confusing 

The gateway is exclusive as there are essentially two states, either with a signature or without. The form cannot have both a signature and not a signature. 

From https://www.lucidchart.com/pages/bpmn-gateway-types

"An exclusive gateway evaluates the state of the business process and, based on the condition, breaks the flow into one of the two or more mutually exclusive paths."

Introduction   When I was introduced to scrum, the burndown chart was a tool that was highly emphasised however I feel the purpose has changed from it being a tool to predict (to a certain level) timescales for delivery to a tool that measures a team’s productivity…..in other words, the focus is on the number of points clear...
