Expanded or In-line Sub Processes

  • One way to represent the ‘expanded’ sub-process is ‘in-line’, as shown.

  • Note that the sub-process looks exactly like a process with a start event, a flow of activities, and end events.

  • The start of the sub-process is triggered by the flow into it.

  • The end of the sub-process depends on whether the normal or exception flow has been followed.

  • The gateway appearing immediately after the 'Raise Requisition' sub-process directs the flow according to which end event has been reached within the sub-process.

  • It is good practice to label the gateway with the same name as one of the end events; in this case, 'Proceed?'.
