Symbols in ARIS Express and ARISalign

In order for models in ARIS Express and ARISalign to match as best possible, the symbol set from the BPMN diagram was reduced in the ARISalign process model type.

You can model all of the symbols here that are listed in the first column of the following table. ARIS Express supports you in doing so by automatically transforming other base symbols from the Symbols toolbar into matching symbols from the list below. The second column in the table shows which symbols the ARIS Express symbols are mapped on in ARISalign.
