The question I'm going to ask may be very simple, and if so, I apologize. I'm new to EPF, basicly having completed all the tutorials 1 day ago.

Within this topic I'm only interested in modelling the simplest of processes: a series of tasks with a given flow, each assigned to a role, with the possibility of decision points. Adding the relations to work products and/or guidance items is also interesting.

Essentially, what I want to do is build something that looks like this (this example comes from the book "ScrumUP - A Visual Guide to Agile IT Improvement Using Scrum, XP and RUP" and it doesn't have any decision points):


Additionally, I would like to have this diagram done in the most automatic way possible, as in, ideally I wouldn't have to draw anything myself, but rather just assign tasks to roles and define which task precedes which. The same goes for for work products/guidance.
And last, if I could have this diagram oriented horizontally, that would be the cherry on top of the cake.

Thank you all very much in advance.

Unfortunately this kind of diagram is not supported by EPF Composer.
You can use other tools to draw any diagram you like (even adding area maps so they link to the correct places).
You can also start with an activity diagram, add the tasks, and then use geometric shapes for the other elements.
The result could be a diagram fairly similar to this, but the geometric shapes won't have hyperlinks.
