Dear Shuguang,

Thank you for your interest in Bizagi.

We clarify that you may use multiple pools and lanes in the BPM Suite (in the unique and same very version that can be downloaded at http://www.bizagi.com/index.php/en/products/bizagi-bpm-suite/overview).

With the BPM Suite, you define each process in a separate diagram, but you may later on define how these interact and connect. For instance, you may use the collaboration diagram to represent this:

3xu8

Perhaps there is a confusion in how to do this, which is part of the actual process implementation. For an example and more information, you may review our documentation online (http://help.bizagi.com/bpmsuite/en/index.html?bpmn_collaboration.htm).

Best regards,

Dear Wilfredo,

I agree what Daisuke said. You can create pools on Bizagi Modeler, but no on Bizagi Studio. Bizagi Studio does not allow to create another pool because it is another process. In order to automate a process, it is possible one by one. Processes can communicate between each other through message flows. This type of communication is called Collaboration. Collaboration is a tool that relates two or more processes allowing them to communicate with each other by sending and receiving messages containing information to take actions.

To know how to add pools on Bizagi Modeler, refer to this article: http://help.bizagi.com/processmodeler/en/index.html?swimlanes.htm
