Purpose: The offer of business process modeling methodologies is very extensive, making it difficult for BPM scholars to make a sustained choice. In this context, this paper aims to present the main modeling methodologies, with applications, examples and comparisons. Approach: A systematic bibliographic survey and a comparative analysis of these notations used in the implementation of BPM projects were carried out. Findings: According to the bibliometric analysis, the business process modeling notations most portrayed in the works surveyed are: BPMN, UML, EPC e IDEF. From the construction of a consistent overview that allows the comparative analysis of the methodologies, in order to select the one that best suits its specificities it can be verified that, although they share the same objective, each notation has its specific characteristics. Originnality/Value: This study has the main purpose of providing a basis for the adequate indication of the application of studies in the area, in particular those for papers, dissertations and theses.
