Business Process Quality Metrics: Log-Based Complexity of Workflow Patterns [chapter]

Jorge Cardoso
On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2007: CoopIS, DOA, ODBASE, GADA, and IS  
Therefore, excessive complexity should be avoided. The major goal of this paper is to describe a quality metric to analyze the complexity of workflow patterns from a log-based perspective.  ...  Namely, they should provide mechanisms to analyze the complexity of workflows.  ...  Log-based complexity metrics for workflow patterns Since it is a well known language, we have used BPMN (Business Process Modeling Notation) to illustrate the log-based complexity of workflow patterns.  ...

Complexity metrics for Workflow nets

Kristian Bisgaard Lassen, Wil M.P. van der Aalst
2009 Information and Software Technology  
The metrics are defined for a subclass of Petri nets named Workflow nets, but the results can easily be applied to other languages.  ...  Recent empirical studies show that people make numerous errors when modeling complex business processes, e.g., about 20 percent of the EPCs in the SAP reference model have design flaws resulting in potential  ...  Conclusion Process models play an important role in the analysis of business processes and their implementation. The correctness and quality of these models are vital for any organization.  ...
