Abstract

In the last years BPMN became the most prominent notation for representing business processes, thanks to its wide usage in academic and industrial contexts. Despite BPMN is very intuitive, it’s way of representing activities with static flow charts may result effective just for the BPM experts. Stakeholders who are not too much aware of the BPMN notation could misread the behavior of the business process. To this aim, BPMN animation tools can help model comprehension. However they are mainly based on 2D diagrams, just few works investigate the use of a 3D world as an environment for closely portray the reality of the business process. In this paper, we propose our tool UBBA, which creates a custom 3D virtual world from an input .bpmn file. Besides this 3-dimensional view of the diagram, we also integrate into UBBA the semantics of the BPMN elements in order to enable the animation.
