Quote from: MarcF88 on September 26, 2017, 05:40:43 AMI do not have a BPMN specification handy, but I do have a Bruce Silver who paraphrases the spec: "Lane is an optional subdivision of a process level. [Lanes] were used to associate process activities with particular actors - departments or roles. [...] BPMN2 actually allows them to be used for any kind of categorization."So it seems BPMN lanes are a generic kind of grouping - abstraction mechanism, however it seems associated with with whom rather than with where the action is. This is also the angle Wierda chooses, he associates BPMN lanes with Archimate roles.
