Goals of this lesson

Basing the gateways' decision making on the process variables is an excellent approach. Though, often it is not necessary to undergo such an effort. E. g. if you know that "Edge 1" will be pursued in 40% of the cases and "Edge 2" in 60% of the cases, it will be unnecessary and time-consuming to define a process variable and the conditions at the edges. Therefore we offer you the possibility to simply put weights (or probabilities) on each edge at the exclusive and inclusive gateway.
