In addition to reusing standard work processes, subprocesses enable you to run a common process against each item in a list of embedded data objects. Use a common collection of assignments, automations, and decisions to run against a list of data objects.

For example, in a purchase order case type that includes a list of line items, run a subprocess to update the inventory totals based on the quantity purchased for each product in the list of line items.
