Overcome the three-level limit of business blueprints in SAP Solution Manager

Business blueprints in SAP Solution Manager 7.1 focus on a strict 3-level hierarchical structure (business scenario - business process - process step). It is not required to limit the business process structure in Signavio to 3 levels. In Signavio, it is possible to use any structure to organize business processes. We encourage you to use BPMN 2.0 subprocess links to achieve the desired level of detail on each level of your business process structure.

In this example a five-level structure is used. Level 3 contains the BPMN 2.0 business processes as usual. Level 4 summarizes some steps of level 3 in more detail by using subprocess links.

In this example, a five-level structure is used. Us usual, level 1 to 3 contain business scenarios, business processes and process steps as usual. Level 4 summarizes some steps of level 3 in more detail by using subprocess links. Level 5 describes some manual steps that do not need to be documented in the business blueprint project in SAP Solution Manager.

The dialog Export to SAP Solution Manager helps you to select the corresponding levels in your business process hierarchy to push their content to the connected business blueprint project in SAP Solution Manager.

Select the levels you want to push to the connected business blueprint.

Select the levels you want to push to the connected business blueprint.

As a result, all content below level 3 in Signavio is flattened to level 3, meaning all BPMN 2.0 tasks on Signavio level 4 become process steps in SAP Solution Manager. These are in this example Load relevant documents and Run report generation:

'Load relevant documents' and 'Run report generation' become process steps in SAP Solution Manager.
