Hi Esimcity,

UML Activity diagrams have swim lanes which group the activites performed by one actor. BPMN has lanes and pools which have broader uses and meanings. Plus people often talk about swimlanes in relation to UML sequence diagrams but I don't use them as they are too technical for me.

Check out wikipedia and buy some books. Plus Guy Beachamp who is a regular poster on this forum has a good BPMN introductory resource that I found useful.

Swimlanes in Business Process Modelling

A BPD is made up of a set of graphical elements. These elements enable the easy development of
simple diagrams that will look familiar to most business analysts (e.g., a flowchart diagram).

The four basic categories of elements are:
• Flow Objects
• Connecting Objects
• Swimlanes
• Artifacts

Swimlanes
Many process modeling methodologies utilizes the concept of swimlanes as a mechanism to organize
activities into separate visual categories in order to illustrate different functional capabilities or
responsibilities. BPMN supports swimlanes with two main constructs. The two types of BPD
swimlane objects are:

1.Pools

2.Lanes
