An evaluation of conceptual business process modelling languages

Beate List, Birgit Korherr
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '06  
To bridge this gap, we propose a generic meta-model that captures a wide range of process concepts and evaluate seven BPMLs based on this meta-model.  ...  Conceptual Business Process Modelling Languages (BPMLs) express certain aspects of processes (e.g. activities, roles, interactions, data, etc.) and address different application areas.  ...  The evaluation concepts are mainly based on meta-models representing a very technical perspective.  ...

A UML 2 Profile for Business Process Modelling [chapter]

Beate List, Birgit Korherr
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this work, we have designed a UML 2 Profile for Business Process Modelling that provides two complementary perspectives, focussing on the business process context (e.g. goals, measures, products, customers  ...  Current UML Profiles for Business Process Modelling realise a narrow focus of the process, and capture the process flow on a low level of detail.  ...  Therefore, we have developed a business process meta-model that provides two complementary perspectives: a business perspective and a sequence perspective.  ...

On Transforming DEMO Models to ArchiMate [chapter]

Sybren de Kinderen, Khaled Gaaloul, H. A. Proper
2012 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
ArchiMate, a language for modelling an organisation from a holistic perspective, lacks guidelines and techniques for exploring each of its perspectives in depth.  ...  In particular, DEMO adds to ArchiMate a conceptual clarity, as well as tools and techniques for modelling business processes.  ...  language subsumes DEMO's social perspective, (2) Define a (partial) enterprise architecture model from a business perspective that focuses on the DEMO process model.  ...

Towards a Unified Business Strategy Language: A Meta-model of Strategy Maps [chapter]

Constantinos Giannoulis, Michael Petit, Jelena Zdravkovic
2010 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
We have set an effort to formalize strategy maps in the form of a meta-model, usage scenarios and constraints, providing a systematic basis for obtaining a unified language/ontology for business strategy  ...  From the requirements engineering perspective this problem leads also to a misalignment between business and IT assets.  ...  Modeling and Utilizing Strategy Maps The content of this section includes our effort on conceptualizing strategy maps into a well-defined meta-model.  ...

Dynamic Switching of Perspectives on Business Processes

Florian Krenn, Christian Stary
2016 Business Informatics Research  
In this paper, we introduce the meta-model and architecture required for a respective dual mode support tool.  ...  Consequently, stakeholders can start modeling with a perspective they are familiar with and proceed with the other one by switching dynamically to the alternate mode of modeling and execution.  ...  Meta-Modeling a Dual-Perspective Engine In this section, we introduce a meta-model called "UeberFlow Lang" which facilitates the capturing of the functional and interactional perspective on executable  ...

Situational Architecture Engineering (SAE) - Improving Strategic Change Through Architecture Methods

Susanne Leist, Gregor Zellner
2008 International Conference on Information Systems  
This article presents a first approach towards making architecture methods flexible: meta models of the architecture frameworks of selected methods are generated and integrated into a joint meta model.  ...  Navigator), Semantic Object Model (SOM)), however, they often lack the necessary flexibility to enable a construction process adaptable to the given situation.  ...  Integrated Framework Meta Model Not only the Zachman Framework and ARIS, but also the meta models of the other frameworks contain one same object type which generalizes the different perspectives on the  ...

Exploring the Potential of Dynamic Perspective Taking on Business Processes

Florian Krenn, Christian Stary
2016 Complex Systems Informatics and Modeling Quarterly  
The presented meta-model and architecture of such a dual mode support tool enables coupling business process management directly with organizational development.  ...  Stakeholders can start modeling with a perspective they are familiar with and subsequently proceed with the another one by switching dynamically to an alternate mode of execution.  ...  Meta Modeling a Dual Perspective Engine In this section, we introduce a meta-model called "UeberFlow Lang" which facilitates the capturing of the functional and interactional perspective on executable  ...

From conceptual process models to running systems: A holistic approach for the configuration of enterprise system processes

Alexander Dreiling, Michael Rosemann, Wil M.P. van der Aalst, Wasim Sadiq
2008 Decision Support Systems  
We introduce a business example using SAP modeling techniques to illustrate the proposed method.  ...  Second, we argue that an integrated process model based on the integrated meta model needs to be configurable and elaborate on the enabling mechanisms.  ...  management perspective had an impact on the models within the business process analyst perspective.  ...

Incremental Synchronization of Organizational Models, Requirements Models and Object-oriented Software Design Models

Marat Abilov, Jorge Marx Gómez
2014 Procedia Technology - Elsevier  
The specification in a source model creates a problem of mixture of several concerns in one artifact.  ...  Hence models, their corresponding meta-models and model transformation code now become first-class artifacts in software development.  ...  Solution Model's Functional perspective defines also a flow of processes and data. Elements of this model can be synchronized to actions and data inputs/outputs of Business Process Model.  ...

Stephan Jacobs, Roland Holten
1995 Proceedings of conference on Organizational computing systems - COCS '95  
We show how business and goal models can be integrated using a common process meta model.  ...  Business modells serve as a framework .for a concrete information systems project.
