Convergence of subprocess and subsystem within a business function implies a shared identity. This is apparent in the name of the function, which is usually quite similar to the names of both the core subprocess and subsystem object state.

For example, the function name "Product Package Order" is similar to its subprocess name "Product Package Ordering," and its subsystem object state which is also "Product Package Ordering."

In most cases, changing the function name to a present participle (using the suffix "ing") will approximate the names of both the subprocess and subsystem object state.

This further illustrates the tight linkage of core process with subsystem.
