Waterfall acceptance business process  

Hello,
I would like to ask you about the way of modeling process which cintains a lot of acceptance steps performed by each business process participant (separate business actor).
Earch role (4 or 5) in the process can accept or reject (return to the previous role) the document (the process can't be changed - this is formal waterfall process in public administration :))

What is the best suitable way to present it to keep readable diagram ?
Should I present all this alternatives and control flows ?

I would be greatful for your opinion.

Thank you.

Adamos,

If the reviewers all do the same things (ie receive document, read, annotate, submit requests/changes or approve) Id just draw two sw imlanes (UML) or pools and lanes (BPMN); one for the reviewers and another for the Presenter/Author.  Keep it simple!
warm regards,
K

Kmajoos,

Ok, thank you very much for your answer.

In this case, if I use this generic process description, where is the suitable place to show how this workflow should look ?

Adamos,

Sorry for this late response, been a bit busy. But could you please post your first attempt - make sure that you keep company information private. I'd suggest that you create a diagram thats "generic" for your document review/approval cycle and post it as Jpeg/Png on this site. Check on Google there are a lot of sample diagrams (UML, BPMN and other) that deal with review/approval cycles

warm regards,

K

Re: Waterfall acceptance business process  

This is generic model - each participant is separate business actor - there couldn't be marged. Is it sensible to repeat the same action (very similar) performed by diffierent roles ?

Nowadays, companies like Audi and HSBC, use IT systems in everything they do. Does that make them to be IT companies rather than banks? Most would probably agree that HSBC is a bank, just as Audi is a car manufacturer. But what about digital banks such as Chime or companies offering digital products? In digital companies, most of the employees work...
