About this video


<p>Based on a transformation of BPMN to Petri nets, the reachability graph of a process (its state space) is built and analyzed for soundness properties. For instance, it is examined if the final state can always be reached and whether all transitions can contribute to a process instance.</p>

Remark: Slide 3-72 states that the second soundness property of the corresponding Petri net is violated. This is not correct. We did a mistake here and have to apologize for that. Only property 1 & 3 is violated in this case.
