A BusinessProcess represents functions and operations that support the internal business activities or other processes of a business enterprise or both. In the manufacturing sector, BusinessProcess elements can include, for example, Order Processing, Production Planning, Purchasing and Receiving, Inventory Management, Production Control, and Accounts Payable and Receivable.

In addition to the relationship sets (Subscribers/Subscriptions and ConsistsOf/MemberOf) inherited from ServiceOffering, a BusinessProcess can also participate in the Serves/ServedBy relationship set with other BusinessProcess elements. Serves/ServedBy models the dependencies between business processes.
