Many of you know that kind of viewpoint, which maps Process Steps to Services, Methods oder Classes to show, how the process is implemented (e.g. Layered Viewpoint of ArchiMate). Most often the Process Steps are shown as a Value Chain.

This viewpoint can be accompanied by a BPMN diagram, showing the processing logic of these Process Steps. To do that BPMN diagrams use Gateways and more.

My questions are:

(1) does the gateway only show the result of an executed Process Step? Or does the Gateway also contains logic or business logic?

(2) if the Gateway contains logic, the gateway should also be part of the viewpoint mentioned above. Otherwise the business logic and the corresponding implemented logic would not be shown and this diagram. And the Layered Viewpoint of ArchiMate would not be correct.

Many thanks in advance
