Individual: Organizational Data Flow

CYB 100

Cyber Domain is the combination if two things, we think cyber as in internet/ computer, to put that with the word domain, meaning an area of owner ship or specified area of activity.

Data is facts and statistics collected together for reference or analysis, it is also the quantities, characters, or symbols on which operations are performed by a computer, being stored and transmitted in the form of electrical signals and recorded on magnetic, optical, or mechanical recording media. Information is facts provided or learned about something or someone and what is conveyed or represented by a particular arrangement or sequence of things. Knowledge is facts, information, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.

A business process is a collection of linked tasks which find their end in the delivery of a service or product to a client. A business process has also been defined as a set of activities and tasks that, once completed, will accomplish an organizational goal. Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) is a graphical representation for specifying business processes in a business process model. Business Process Management Initiative (BPMI) developed BPMN, which has been maintained by the Object Management Group since the two organizations merged in 2005.

Business process modeling (BPM) in systems engineering is the activity of representing processes of an enterprise, so that the current process may be analyzed or improved. BPM is typically performed by business analysts, who provide expertise in the modeling discipline; by subject matter experts, who have specialized knowledge of the processes being modeled; or more commonly by a team comprising both. Alternatively, the process model can be derived directly from events’ logs using process mining tools. The business objective is often to increase process speed or reduce cycle time; to increase quality; or to reduce costs, such as labor, materials, scrap, or capital costs. In practice, a management decision to invest in business process modeling is often motivated by the need to document requirements for an information technology project.

Swimlane objects (aka: Swimlanes) in BPMN are rectangular boxes that represent participants of a business process. A swimlane may contains flow objects that are performed by that lane (participant), except for black box that must have an empty body (we will talk about black box later on in this tutorial). Swimlanes may be arranged horizontally or vertically. They are semantically the same but just different in representation. For horizontal swimlanes, process flows from left to right, while process in vertical swimlanes flow from top to bottom. Examples of swimlanes include Customer, Account Department, Payment Gateway and Development Team. There is two kinds of swim lanes which are Pools and Lanes in pools they represent people in a business process, lanes are sub partition of a pool. For instance, when you have a pool Department, you may have Department Head and General Clerk as lanes. Same as pools, you can use lanes to represent specific entities or roles who are involved in the process. In BRMN there is symbols in the process and with each symbol it is Participants with is your pools and lanes, then artifacts is text annotation and groups, gateways which is exclusive, inclusive, parallel, and event. There is data which had data object and data store. Activities has tasks, subprocess, call activity, event subprocess, and transaction. Throwing events are assumed by BPMN to trigger themselves instead of reacting to a trigger. You could say that they are active compared to passive catching events. We call them throwing events for short, because the process triggers them. Throwing events can be: triggered during the process, triggered at the end of the process.
