Process structure on the SAP side

How processes are created and structured differs between SAP Solution Manager and SAP Signavio Process Manager.

In SAP Solution Manger, unlike SAP Signavio Process Manager, there is a distinction between process definitions and visual process diagrams.

A structure that contains process definitions is called a scenario. A process definition can contain a list of Process Steps. Process Steps are stored in the Process Step library and can contain additional links, material and attributes. This list of Process Steps can be used to create visual process diagrams.
