How to model this situation?

Hello everyone.

I work in a laboratory and I have to model the following process:

Lab supplies are delivered. The receiving team performs a receiving inspecion and identifies if the supplies delivered are critical or not. If the suplies are critical, they are sent to quarantine and the receiving team notifies the sampling team, so that they prepare the samples required and send them to be analyzed by the Lab. At the same time, the receiving team sends the receiving inspection report to the analytical documentation team. Once analyzed, the Lab send the analysis report to analytical documentation team. The analytical documentation team register the results received and prepares a final repport, which is sent to the supervisor. The supervisor signs the final repport and send it to the receiving team. If no quality deviations were found, the receiving team moves the supplies from the quarantine to the stock. If there is a deviation, the supplies are moved to the rejected area. End.

If the supplies are not critical, the receiving team sends the receiving inspection report to the supervisor. The supervisor signs the report and send it back to the receiving team. If no quality deviations were found, the receiving team moves the supplies to the stock. If there is a deviation, the supplies are moved to the rejected area. End.

I can model this process, but I think it wouldn't be well modeled (I would use tons of exclusive gateways, etc.). Because you have more experience then me with BPMN, I am sure I can learn a lot from your models. I would like to see the best way to model this situation.

Thanks in advance!

Dear Pedro,

Regarding your question, the sent model had a few changes according to the description of the process, involving a sub-process for the inspection of all samples and an exchange of messages inside the process. For an example and more information please see the attached model.

We hope this information was clear and useful, as we expect to have solved your doubts regarding your specific submitted questions in this subject.
