EPC Diagram Software
EPC Diagram Software - Create EPC diagrams rapidly with Edraw EPC diagram examples and templates.
Event-Driven Process Chain (EPC diagrams)
EPC diagrams illustrate business process work flows, and are an important
component of the SAP R/3 modeling concepts for business engineering. EPC
diagrams use graphical symbols to show the control flow structure of a
business process as a chain of events and functions.
Using the EPC Diagram template in Edraw, you can quickly and easily create a
high-level, visually striking model of your business process.
Easy to create Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) diagrams to document business processes
Document SAP processes. It can also make flow
charts, organizational charts, business process, workflows, program structures, network
diagrams, chart and graphics, mind map, directional
maps and database diagrams. With the pre-drawn libraries
and more than 4600 vector symbols, drawing has become super easy!

EPC Diagram Software and View All
The building blocks used in EPC diagrams are:
- Functions, which are the basic building blocks of the diagram. Each
function corresponds to an executed activity.
- Events, which occur before and/or after a function is executed.
Functions are linked with events.
- Connectors, which associate activities and events. There are three
types of connectors: AND, OR, and exclusive OR (XOR).
Once completed, you can use the EPC diagram as a reference for modeling
the SAP R/3 system.

How to Draw EPC Diagram
Edraw Flowchart Software provides some examples and
templates of EPC diagrams. You can draw EPC diagram based on the templates.
It's easy to use and simple to learn.
- On the File menu, point to New,
point to Business Process, and then click
- From EPC Diagram Shapes, drag the shapes you want
to represent your business process onto the drawing page.
- Use the Connector tool to connect the shapes.
- Click the Connector tool, and then drag
from a connection point
on the first shape to a connection point on the second shape.
- When you are finished connecting shapes, click the Pointer
To reverse the direction of the arrow on a connector, on the
Shape menu, point to Operations,
and then click Reverse Ends.
- To add text to a shape, select it, and then type. When you are
finished typing, click outside the text block.
Note: To edit text, double-click the shape, place the cursor
where you want to change the text, and then type.
Edraw symbols were designed for the EPC, too. An EPC can
be used in process analysis for more complex structures and is more suitable for
bigger enterprises. An EPC can be used in cases when we describe a process model
with no need for further analysis of events and functions. Therefore, a complex
process structure is possible. EPC represents a core-procedure of a process and
is most suitable for describing a complex process structure of a big enterprise.
An EPC model, presents not only core functions of process but also give us
possibility to represent who and which organizational unit executes a function,
which input data are necessary, which output data have been created by the
function. EPC is missing all those insights about the business processes.
Therefore, an EPC can be used in business process model regarding the
information flow, thus, it is very difficult to recognize media interruptions
because this presentation focuses on events and functions. Therefore, an EPC is
very suitable for describing information and events/function business analysis
