Business Process Management: A Comprehensive Survey

Wil M. P. van der Aalst
2013 ISRN Software Engineering  
Business Process Management (BPM) research resulted in a plethora of methods, techniques, and tools to support the design, enactment, management, and analysis of operational business processes.  ...  This survey aims to structure these results and provide an overview of the state-of-the-art in BPM. In BPM the concept of a process model is fundamental.  ...  Indeed, flexibility is as much about what should stay the same in a process as what should be allowed to change [208, 209] . In [209] a taxonomy of process flexibility is presented.  ...

Information Systems and Healthcare XXXI: Improving Infection Control Process Efficiency to Reduce Hospital Acquired Infections

Christian Janiesch, Robin Fischer
2009 Communications of the Association for Information Systems  
The insufficient integration of actors results in delays in clinical processes.  ...  We report on the workflow implementation of a clinical infection control process which integrates disparate systems and automates clinical decision making according to clinical knowledge.  ...  This differentiation of core and supplementary processes is not always selective, as one business process might be a core process for one product and a supplementary process for another.  ...

Towards using visual process models to control enterprise systems functionalities

Jens Weller, Martin Juhrisch, Werner Esswein
2006 International Journal of Networking and Virtual Organisations  
In this paper, we propose a model-driven approach for web-service development with the intention of IT-Infrastructure integration in enterprise models.  ...  Therefore, we assess at the grammatical specification of conceptual modeling languages for business domains.  ...  However, in contrast to the orchestration of webservices to executable business processes, the following approach aims at a model-driven control of a dynamic IT-Infrastructure.  ...

Performance Evaluation of Web Services Orchestrated with WS-BPEL4 People

Henrique Jorge A. Holanda, Jose Merseguer Hernaiz, Giovanni Cordeiro Barroso, A. B. Serra
2010 International Journal of Computer Networks & Communications  
WS-BPEL Extension for People (BPEL4People) introduces human activity to Web Services Business Process Execution Language (WS-BPEL/BPEL).  ...  In this paper, we propose a model method for the transformation of WS-BPEL4People/BPEL4People into Generalized Stochastic Petri Nets (GSPN) and this way evaluate its performance.  ...  We particularly thank the Professor José Merseguer Hernáiz for believing in my abilities and always be present in the development of this work and for your review for an informative and thorough review  ...

Dynamic business network process management in instant virtual enterprises

Paul Grefen, Nikolay Mehandjiev, Giorgos Kouvas, Georg Weichhart, Rik Eshuis
2009 Computers in industry (Print)  
The approach, architecture and technology required for this dynamic network process management in IVEs are outlined in this paper.  ...  The required efficiency of creating and operating IVEs can only be obtained by automated support for design, setup and enactment of business processes within these IVEs.  ...  As suggested by its name, DBNPM is in two ways an extension of 'classical' business process management (BPM) or workflow management (WFM): it considers business processes that have an interorganizational  ...

Business Process Management Standards [chapter]

Frank Leymann, Dimka Karastoyanova, Michael P. Papazoglou
2010 Handbook on Business Process Management 1  
The focus is on technology-related standards, especially on standards for specifying process models.  ...  A discussion of the two fundamental approaches for modeling processes, graph-based and operator-based, supports a better understanding of the evolution of standards.  ...  Many other graphical elements exist, making BPMN a powerful notation for drawing diagrams of business processes. BPMN allows a lot of flexibility in combing the graphical elements.  ...

EM-BrA2CE v0.1: A Vocabulary and Execution Model for Declarative Business Process Modeling

Stijn Goedertier, Raf Haesen, Jan Vanthienen
2007 Social Science Research Network  
In management theory of the last decades, much importance has been attached to a process-oriented perspective on organizational (re)structuring.  ...  Yet to date, organizations still experience difficulties in applying this process-oriented perspective to the design and maintenance information systems.  ...  A process model can contain, in addition to pre-defined activities and control flow, several so-called pockets of flexibility.  ...

An Intermediate Data-driven Methodology for Scientific Workflow Management System to Support Reusability [article]

Debasish Chakroborti
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this thesis first we propose an intermediate data management scheme for a SWfMS.  ...  Consequently, in our fourth study, We have done several experiments for analyzing the performance and exploring the effectiveness of the technique in a SWfMS for various environments.  ...  On the other hand, data modularity is always anticipated for quick and flexible access to a dataset.  ...

A Model Driven Application Framework for Managed Processes

Abel A Tegegne, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa
2013
Effective decision making, among other things, requires a configurable business process application platform that can be used to execute, monitor and manage processes involving people, teams, departments  ...  These types of applications must also be configurable to adapt to frequently changing types of business events and the process of collect event data.  ...  WFMS can be used for automating and controlling business processes. WFMS separates application logic from process logic.  ...

Comparison of composition engines and identification of shortcomings with respect to cloud computing [article]

Thomas Bachmann, Lukasz Bialy, Anand Babu, Universität Stuttgart, Universität Stuttgart
2012
This is due to multiple reasons like no support for transparent scalability, no multi-tenancy support, no ability to store process related data in a Cloud storage, or no support for quality of service  ...  Recently Cloud based workflow services appeared in the workflow landscape and promise to run workflows in the Cloud.  ...  Other WfMS components or composition engines and SOA software components are out of scope.  ...
