Process Modeling (BPMN): Landscape or Portrait orientation?

Hey mega community

 

I was wondering if you have any preferance when it comes to modeling processes using BPMN, i.e. do you prefer modeling your pools and swimlanes in portrait orientation?

 

(I realized, mega hopex's default is 'portrait orientation')

 

Thanks,

Palmetto

Hi Palmetto,
It depends on the business subject, very odd not ?
For administrative processes, EDM tasks, this is vertical lines ...
and for supply chain or Product management (design, manufacturing, ...) it is very often horizontal.
Perhaps it is linked with cultural past practices (Gantt, Grafcets, etc.)
That's it !

I recommend using portrait. The reason is simple. When using the static website generated in Mega, the portrait diagrams are more practical. You only have to scroll up and down, not left and right when browsing.
