My favorite BPD tool is the one I can get for what I can pay. Most tools are good enough to be useful, but it all depends on the objectives you want or need to achieve. It depends also on particular preferences.

It depends on my use case.

When doing it for myself, I prefer Sparx Enterprise Architect, as I can develop more elements jointly with the BPM design. However, disadvantage is the usability.

For an approach with normal users (business analysts with low IT level), we analysed several tools and finally concluded Camunda's open source editor. You do not need many explantions, easy to use, export is available.

I also used several other tools, mosty notably Bizagi, which I would also recommend.

I enjoy using Bizagi process modeler

I like its simplicity and the fact that it user friendly-it does not require one to have an IT or systems developer background which is a plus to in my work environment

I Like its simulation capabilities enabling us to model as-is processes an run different simulations that can show us how the to-be process would behave like

It is open source
