Order Fulfillment

This is a BPMN diagram example. The order fulfilment process starts after receiving an order message and continues to check whether the ordered article is available or not. An available article is shipped to the customer followed by a financial settlement, which is a collapsed sub-process in this diagram. In case that an article is not available, it has to be procured by calling the procurement sub-process. Please note that the shape of this collapsed sub-process is thickly bordered which means that it is a call activity. It is like a wrapper for a globally defined task or, like in this case, sub-process.

This diagrammatic representation explained the process of order fulfillment very well. But this process could be better executed with the strategic planning which ensures its efficiency.

Order fulfillment is defined as the steps involved in receiving, processing and delivering orders to end customers. A fulfillment service is defined as a third-party company that provides these order fulfillment steps on behalf of another party, such as an online seller

Order fulfillment is an end to end process. From processing the order to the time of delivery. All come with the customer satisfaction and the kind of services provided.
