Nowadays the most commonly used technologies in Enterprise Architecture modeling are static. BPMN is one of such technologies, which is used widely for drawing models of business processes. Limitation of BPMN is that it gives a static image, or drawing, of business process without simulation capability. Petri net is one of the modeling tools with dynamics functionality. This functionality is mostly applied in simulation of discrete-event dynamic systems. Business process can be represented as such a system. BPMN and Petri net are completely different tools with different purposes. In the paper we suggest an original approach of transformation of BPMN to Petri net, in addition to it we propose an extension to BPMN diagram which will make further simulation with Petri net more powerful. As a proof for the suggested concept, we made a partial implementation of it.
