When transforming a business process into an executable process, it is transformed into a BPMN diagram first. This is an invisible, intermediate step. In this video we will show the transformation of an EPC into a BPMN diagram. You will see what happens if an EPC is changed and how ARIS helps you identify and accept changes on the target side with the interactive merge. If relevant changes are made to the BPMN diagram, the EPC can be aligned.    

The EPC already exists and will be transformed into a BPMN diagram.    

The model transformation's name is always the name of the database in which it was generated. In this example we will use the model transformation provided by the reference database 'Governance Automation Models'. You can define further settings. Keep the target group. The EPC was transformed into a BPMN diagram.
Add a function to the EPC and then transform again. Now take a look at what happens. Select the existing BPMN diagram as the target model.
Activate the interactive merge. Conflicts occur by adding the function to the source model. You can solve these conflicts individually, as a group of conflicts or as a whole.    

Now change the BPMN diagram and open the view to align the EPC with the BPMN diagram.    
Technical changes to the BPMN model are relevant for the EPC if they represent a modeling improvement. In this case, the EPC can be adjusted manually.  

You just saw how models can be transformed, what the interactive merge does and how the target can be aligned with the source.
