Guidelines for creation of a new case type


Do we have any standard guidelines about the parameters to considers when we should create a new case type or when should have the child process as sub process. 

I understand some of the parameters are -

  • parallelism between processes
  • user group who own and work on processes 
  • data sharing between processes
  • data management during the processes  
  • security and privilege on the work type


But do we have an exhaustive list of parameters which we should always consider before deciding in favor of a new case type in any implementation ?


Also Is there a recommendation ( with quantification i.e. numbers ) which can serve the purpose as a defined guideline on this topic 

To explain previous statement , lets say -  X% of parallelism between processes combined with Y% of data sharing(with updates) is a definite use case for a new case type otherwise sub process ? 


P.S. - With optimistic locking / data pages and case specialization capabilities - the first four parameters are not very definitive.
