If there is just ONE single thing ARIS is famous for : then it's the so-called EPC.

*** Raise your hand if you do not know the EPC ***

EPC stands for event-driven process chain and is one of the central modeling notation in ARIS. It integrates all relevant business perspectives, describes processes in detail on a procedural level and is embedded in the overall ARIS process landscape.

Still EPC is a very comprehensive modeling notation and requires an overview to get the most out of it. That's why we created an EPC cheat sheet.

The EPC cheat sheet includes:

- overview on the EPC core elements

- additional extended elements that are traditionally used to detail the pure process flow

So get your free cheat sheet copy today! Click on the picture to enlarge it and download the pdf document.

I disagree with the comments regarding 'Position'. Position is the same as the job title and many people can have the same Job Title, e.g. Accountant. 

Org Units are connected to Positions and a position can have a number of Roles assigned.

Hi Mike,

thank you very much for commenting and sharing your thoughts. In fact, in ARIS, we interpret the role as a typification of individuals with identical responsibilities and privileges. Coming from that point of view, the "Accountant" is a role, while the "Head of Accounting" is the position.

Looking at the organizational structure, an org unit may include several roles and positions. Nevertheless, all organizational elements can be connected to a function in an EPC (RACI).

Best regards, Tom
