Decision or Conditional Event question

New user, first time posting :slight_smile:

I am making a BPMN from a production plant & processes, I have a question. In this production, if there is not enough raw material, the order will be set “on pause”, and will require purchasing of further materials. If there is enough raw material, the production can be planned and then started. This process of checking the inventory for go or no go, is it a decision or is it a conditional event? It is decided by the production manager, as they dont use an ERP system, so I can’t really figure out :smiley:

Thanks in advance for helping :slight_smile:forum


Id model it like you have and treat it as a task to check for sufficient inventory. I tend to use conditional events for things like say if temperature reaches x, ie those variables which can change independently over the lifetime of the process concern…
