In designing the EPC model of a business process, we associate either Role or Person Type with the function, with "carries out" attribute. This helps in generating Job Description of particular Person Type. Must say, an excellent feature, provided by ARIS.

However, there is a confusion of either one should assign Role to EPC function OR it should be Person Type, that must be associated to function. According to us, Roles can be attached to EPC function, and in an Organogram where all Person Types are assigned to Departments etc, Roles can be assigned to each Person Type here.

What should be the best practice?
