Aligning Business Process Models and Domain Knowledge: A Meta-modeling Approach [chapter]

Samira Si-Said Cherfi, Sarah Ayad, Isabelle Comyn-Wattiau
2013 Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing  
this paper we propose to support this modeling effort with an approach that uses domain knowledge to improve the semantic quality of BP models.  ...  This approach relies on domain ontologies as a mean to capture domain knowledge and on meta-modeling techniques.  ...  Our approach relies on the process having as input point the business process model to be evaluated and a domain ontology representing business knowledge and rules of the underlying problem domain.  ...

Ontology-based approach to reuse of business process knowledge

Donatas Čiukšys, Albertas Čaplinskas
2008 Informacijos mokslai  
The paper proposes an approach to reuse of business process knowledge based on domain engineering, knowledge engineering and ontology-based systems engineering.  ...  The main idea of the proposed approach is to separate business process ontology and application domain ontology, and reuse the process ontology in different application domains.  ...  Similarly an application system may provide order-processing capability and be able to change the state of order from unprocessed to processed one. Finally, concept "goal" models business goals.  ...

A New Approach to Develop Collaborative Ontology based BPMN Case Study: Generation of Fiscal Code

Meryam El mrini, Ibn Zohr University, IRF-SIC Laboratory, Agadir, 80000, Morocco, El hassan Megder, Mostafa El yassa
2020 International Journal of Information Technology and Computer Science  
Our approach begins with the idea of using a business process model of the collaborative situation, represented in BPMN notation, and to transform it into a collaborative ontology.  ...  Our collaborative process will be modeled collaboratively, and its transformation to an ontology will be done through a first transformation to Subject oriented BPM (S-BPM).  ...  And we would like to show our gratitude to the National Centre for Scientific and Technical Research (Morocco) for offering an excellence research grants to our corresponding author so she can undertake  ...
