Business Process Model Paths

The quality of a business process model is determined not only by its activities, but also by the business flows within the model, or paths. A path is an end-to-end sequence of transitions between activities in a model.

A business process model that you create with standard modeling tools does not include path definitions. As paths are important for verifying the quality of a business process, ALM enables you to define paths in your imported models.

ALM automatically analyzes all possible end-to-end paths in a model, and allows you to select those paths that are important to test.

Note: Recursive paths that repeat the same activity are not supported.

For each path you create, a representative requirement is created automatically under the Paths group requirement, a child of the model representative requirement.
