Hi all:

I am using Oracle BPA 11g r1 to simulate processes that contain subprocesses, but the tool does not allow me to have the total time of the process containing the subprocesses, just show me the time for each existing subprocesses. Are there any special setup to get the total process time?


Thanks for your help

What do you mean with "total time"? The throughput time? That's shown for each process instance in the detailed process statistics. The value for the top-level process as well as the values for the sub-processes are shown, each in a separate row.

Mr Ralf Aneli Hello, thanks for your help. For example in the previous diagram when I do the simulation, the tool gives me the time of each subprocess (1,2,3) and top level process, but the top level process time  is zero, because it has no activities , is there any special setup to get top level process time?, because in complicated models, for example, with   exclusive  gateways and parallel gateways ,the  time calculation top level process  is more  complicated 

Thanks for your help

I'm still not sure what you mean with "process time". The time between a process instance is started and finished, i.e. the throughput time?

Anyway, I ran one instance through the following process in ARIS 7.2:

BPMN process with sub-process objects

Behind 'f1' is a simple sub-process with a start event, a task and an end event. The task has a processing time of one minute. An analogous sub-process is assigned to 'f2' but the task in this process has a processing time of two minutes.

The following image shows the detailed process statistics for the simulation run:

Detailed process statistics

You can see that there are entries for the top level process and for each sub-process. For the sub-processes you get throughput times of one and two minutes respectively, as to be expected from the defined processing times. For the top-level process you get a throughput time of three minutes, i.e. the sum of the sub-process values because the sub-processes are executed in sequence.

Is that the output you want?

Yes, Thanks for your help ,
