ITECH1100 Understanding the Digital Revolution CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Lab 2 Process Modelling.docx Page 1 of 7 Week 2 Process Modelling Overview In this lab, you will use a diagramming tool to create process models. Prerequisites Familiarity with the week 2 lecture materials. Resources draw.io, an online diagramming tool Task Details Preliminaries draw.io Draw.io is an online diagramming tool. Its relatively easy to use (with some quirks), and has built-in support for BPMN diagrams. You may use Visio or an alternative tool if you prefer. Navigate to www.draw.io in a web browser After a short browser redirect, you should be presented with a screen like the following: You can connect draw.io to a cloud provider to store your work. Your University email account should allow you to save using OneDrive; alternatively, you can choose any of the other options if you have an account. Beware that using Device will store your work only on the computer youre using. Choose somewhere to save your diagrams CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Lab 2 Process Modelling.docx Page 2 of 7 Task One Basic BPMN The draw.io interface looks as follows: The centre area is your canvas, this is where you will construct your diagrams. Try drawing some shapes from the General section. With a shape selected, change the fill and outline (stroke) colours. Use the delete key on your keyboard to delete elements once youve added them. Adding BPMN symbols Scroll down the toolbox panel (on the left) and check that you have access to BPMN symbols. If these symbol libraries are not available, choose More Shapes and add BPMN from under the Business category CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Lab 2 Process Modelling.docx Page 3 of 7 Using only BPMN symbols, replicate the following diagrams. You can create a new diagram for each, or create multiple models in a single diagram Hint: add text to events by just selecting them and starting to type Task 1.a Task 1.b CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Lab 2 Process Modelling.docx Page 4 of 7 Task 1.c Task 1.d CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Lab 2 Process Modelling.docx Page 5 of 7 Task two Modelling Consider the following process description (in English): Morgan wants to sign up for an account on Doggobook, the worlds third-best social network for dog enthusiasts. She enters her email address and a password into the sign-up form. If her password is not long or complex enough, the Doggobook website asks her to try again with a new password. Once Morgan has created a strong-enough password, she is granted access to the site. Doggobook sends her an email confirming that shes created an account. We would like to create a model of this process to visualize the steps. It is up to you to determine an appropriate level of abstraction, but you should end up with at least two resources and at least three activities. Task 2.a Process boundaries What are the process boundaries? What event triggers the process and what are the possible outcomes? Task 2.b Resources What are the resources, or actors, in the process? Where are the handovers of control? Hint: they will usually be on submission of a web form or display of a web page in a system such as this one Task 2.c Activities Identify the various activities that are involved in the process Hint: try to think of activities as verb noun pairs. Task 2.d Diagramming Create a BPMN swimlane diagram to model this process, using draw.io. Your model should include at least one branch and one merge likely for repetition. CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Lab 2 Process Modelling.docx Page 6 of 7 Task 2.e Exporting / saving your work From draw.io, choose File / Export As and choose PNG, to save your Doggobook signup process model as an image. The default export options should be fine for this lab. When prompted where to save your PNG file, choose Download and save the generated file into your documents. If you have multiple models on your diagram, you can drag a selection box around your diagram first, and choose Selection Only and Crop from the export options. PNG are raster graphics files. As we will see when we talk about computer graphics, vector files such as SVG are better able to represent shapes such as ours. Unfortunately, SVG files are unsupported by our ePortfolio system. They are supported by recent editions of Microsoft Word, with some caveats. To use draw.io SVGs in Word, select all text elements in your diagram and disable Word Wrap and Formatted Text before exporting. Create a new ePortfolio page for this lab task. Use a similar naming scheme to the one you used for week 1 Edit your new ePortfolio page, and add an Image block. Upload the PNG file you created earlier, ensuring you check the rights declaration checkbox (see below) After uploading, make sure you select the file you just uploaded and select Save.
