Implicit Termination

The Implicit Termination pattern provides an alternative to forcing transitions directly to the End activity. This is sometimes necessary because a process might need to reach the End activity from many activities in a process.

Example 1: This End activity is often seen as a single funnel out of the process. The End activity can then be used as the point of the merge as shown in the figure 1 for the many transition branches in a process.

Example 2: The Connector icon (circle with an arrow) shown in figure 2 represents the End activity and prevents the unsightly clutter caused by drawing a transition across the entire width of the process.
