This chapter depict the states of all BPM objects.

To determine if a Process is running or finished apply the following rules: Running: if any started path has not reached an end event yet. Finished: if all started path has reached an end event. General Rule: If any transition has no children and the end artifact of that transition is not an end event --> that execution path is pending. Exception to the General Rule: When timer in not activated then the parent transitions of the timer will not have any children transitions and this is an exception to the above rule.
