Subprocess

A Subprocess Task represents a self-contained, composite activity that can be broken down into smaller units of work. It’s embedded in the process. It’s a graphical object within a process that contains a process.

By breaking down large models into smaller ones, Subprocesses make processes easier to understand and maintain. In processes with complex hierarchies, you can nest Subprocesses in multiple levels to break down a process model hierarchically.

A Subprocess Task appears as a rectangle with rounded corners and a black edge.
