Production Case Management: A Prototypical Process Engine to Execute Flexible Business Processes

Stephan Haarmann, Nikolai Podlesny, Marcin Hewelt, Andreas Meyer, Mathias Weske
2015 International Conference on Business Process Management  
PCM is an approach to model and execute flexible, data-driven, and user-centric business processes. Complementing the conceptual framework, we introduce a modeler and an engine for PCM in this paper.  ...  In Business Process Management (BPM) recently several approaches have been proposed to handle flexible process execution, counter the strict adherence to process models at run-time, and allow for adaptations  ...  We thank Jaspar Mang, Juliane Imme, Jan Selke, and Sven Ihde for their continuous support towards implementation of this prototypical process engine for PCM.  ...
