How to document variations in a standard process in BPM


I’ve just had a video call about process modelling in PowerDesigner, and I was presented with a process modelling issue.

The client has modelled processes for a manufacturing company, and he needs to be able to show (and then report on later) how the standard process varies between markets. I suspect Visio users might just create a diagram for each market, but that would be time-consuming and prone to error and consistency problems. I know you can put conditions on sequence flows, etc, but this could get complicated.

I suppose a similar issue might come up if a process varies by product as well.

I don't do process modelling for a living, so I'm open to ideas about how to handle different scenarios.
