What is an Event-Driven Process Chain?

Event-driven Process Chains (EPC) are very similar to process diagrams in that they show a process and each of the elements involved in the completion of that process. However, EPC use special symbols and notation, and are always triggered by an event. This event is always symbolized using a hexagon.
