Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the suitability and sufficincy of BPMN language in business processmodelling. Production logistics system is modeled at the highest domain level using case study in carcomponent industry to examine the language in every aspect. Modelling is carried out in a modular basis forthree main sub-systems generally using BPMN 2.0. Complementary use of other modeling tool to cover all thecritical flows of objects and associate data in modeling was seen necessary and addressed using UML activitydiagrams employing the specific capability of modeling the material flow and semantics. Modeling the flow ofobjects provides the comprehensive perspective of the whole system and fulfill the need of capturing allundepicted object flows as well as processes and data which may not be sheerly covered using the BPMN. Theproposed models provides great beneficial referentiality for modelers, analyists and actual practitioners oflogistics activities. The significant explanatory description and strategy are the key feature of the paper tofollow using state-of-the- art modeling tool of BPMN 2.0 and UML.
