Should BPMN 2 product offer executable runtime?

Hi,

Should a BPMN 2 product be able to run a model to ensure its proper configuration? Should it then come with an executable runtime to deploy the models onto? May I expect a model be executable at all?

Hi Jacek,

Yes - all those things are possible. However, you need a real modelling tool rather than a drawing program such as Visio. This is likely to be expensive, so it's always a good idea to first list your requirements for BPMN modelling so that you don't get end up with something that is very powerful, but has many features that you never use.
