This chapter talks about Resources. A Participant, that is part of the execution of the activity, can be assigned to every activity. Although the Participant normally represents a human resource, you are free to expand the term to machines, storage capacities, loading vehicles, and so on.


If you want to assign resources to your models, you need IYOPRO organization diagrams to define them. More information can be found in the IYOPRO documentation.

The raw process to create a model with resources is as follows:

  1. Create a BPI-Project
  2. Create the organization diagram like the one from Figure 1
  3. Add a collaboration diagram
  4. Import the roles at any activity or pool / lane from the organization diagram
  5. Now you can chose the roles at every activity or pool / lane
