Abstract. Modeling based on a graphical notation understandable for different specialists has become very popular. Within the area of business processes, the most common one is the Business Process Modeling and Notation (BPMN). BPMN is aimed at all business users who design, analyze, manage and monitor business processes. Most papers in this area focus on making use of the possibilities that BPMN makes available, but there is lack of papers analyzing possible errors and ways of detecting and eliminating them. Specification of a BPMN diagram is relatively precise, but it is only a descriptive form presented at some abstract, graphical level. Hence, the main focus of this article is an attempt to analyze the topic of the anomalies which are likely to occur when modeling with use of BPMN.
