Use the Parallel Gateway to model concurrency in a process. You can use the object to fork the process. The functionality of the object is based on the incoming and outgoing process flows.

  • Forking the process flow: If you use the parallel gateway to fork the process, all outgoing process flows are followed in parallel.
  • Joining process flows: You can also use the parallel gateway to join several process flows which means that the process flow is only continued if all previous flows have arrived at the gateway.
