Usage of a restricted number of activities

Revision date:

Purpose

Use a limited number of activities in process models to ensure clarity and comprehensibility.

Description

This rule helps ensure that long, coherent activity sequences are modeled in subprocesses. To comply with this rule, a process must not use more than a specified number of activities. In Signavio Process Manager, you can restrict the number of activities in a diagram in the ‘Define modeling conventions’ settings, located in the ‘Setup’ menu of the Signavio Explorer.

If this rule is violated, you should group an appropriate number of activities in a linked subprocess.
