Defining Resources

Overview

A Resource is a Business Entity (e.g. a company, company division, a customer) or a Business Role (e.g. a buyer, a seller, a credit analyst), which controls or is responsible for a business process or a business activity.

 

Resources are part of the basic Element properties provided by default.  In each shape they are identified as Performers, since they are the ones taht actually perform the task. They can be defined for the whole Pool and for each Activity (Task or Sub-process).
