I have some questions regarding the presentation of documents as an input/output in a EPC.

If a document is changed in several process steps in a row, do you always say it is an input (because you need it to perform your activity), and, because you change the content with each process step, always as an output? How would you name the documents? Should it be a single name (e.g document xy), as I use only one single template (which is also shared in the ARIS document library), or should I give kind of a status information (like document xy update A, update xy B etc.).

The point is, to make it clear for everybody who reads, but also I want to avoid that the process flow explodes.


What is your experience and recommendation?

Thanks for feedback!
