Getting started

This chapter provides an overview of the features of SAP Signavio Process Manager.

The explorer

After logging in, the explorer opens in your browser. It allows you to navigate through diagrams and files stored in your workspace. Here you can create new diagrams and publish them in SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub or share them by other means. As SAP Signavio supports open standards, importing diagrams from other systems is easy. In the explorer, you can adjust your personal settings. Administrators can also configure workspace settings here. For details, see section Explorer overview.

The editor

The editor can be accessed by opening a diagram or creating a new one. Using the editor, you can create and edit all kinds of supported diagrams. For details, see section Modeling.

Besides BPMN 2.0, SAP Signavio supports Decision Model and Notation (DMN), ArchiMate, and many Further notations.


QuickModel gives you the possibility to create simple BPMN-diagrams in seconds by use of a spreadsheet-like interface. Diagrams created in this application can be edited in the editor like any other diagram to add complexity or update the process. See section Modeling with QuickModel for details.

The dictionary

The dictionary allows you to manage and re-use specific modeling elements. It also allows you to ensure all your modelers are using the same terms and elements in your organization-specific modeling environment.

SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub

The launchpad of SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub provides access to your published process landscape, see section Your launchpad.

The Diagram and Revision Comparison Tool

The diagram and revision comparison tool helps you to keep track of changes. See section Compare revisions for details.

BPMN and DMN Simulation

You can run BPMN Simulation and DMN simulation to analyze key performance indicators and bottlenecks and apply your business decision logic directly within the tool. The DMN Test lab helps you to continuously check whether your decision logic is consistent with your initial requirements. See sections Simulating BPMN diagrams and DMN simulation for details.
