Pragmatic Guidelines for Business Process Modeling

Isel Moreno-Montes de Oca, Monique Snoeck
2014 Social Science Research Network  
It seems that from the perspective of representational measurement theory [16] sometimes CLA is not a good metric to indicate the understandability of the model.  ...  In particular, the guidelines focus on obtaining high quality of business process models in terms of their quality as a model, i.e. as a representation of a certain reality.  ...

Prediction of Business Process Model Quality Based on Structural Metrics [chapter]

Laura Sánchez-González, Félix García, Jan Mendling, Francisco Ruiz, Mario Piattini
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The quality of business process models is an increasing concern as enterprise-wide modelling initiatives have to rely heavily on non-expert modellers.  ...  Since these attributes of a model can only be assessed a posteriori, it is of central importance for quality management to identify significant predictors for them.  ...  From a practical perspective, these structural metrics can provide valuable guidance for the design of process models, in particular for selecting semantically equivalent alternatives that differ structurally  ...

Designing BP-IS Aligned Models: An MDA-based Transformation Methodology

Wiem Khlif, Nourchene Elleuch, Enaam Alotabi, Hanêne Ben-Abdallah
2018 Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Evaluation of Novel Approaches to Software Engineering  
The necessity of aligning an enterprise's IS model to its business process model (BPM) is irrefutable.  ...  The main difficulty of establishing/maintaining BP-IS models alignment stems from the divergent knowledge domains of the stakeholders (business process experts and software developers).  ...  They propose an approach to generate a data model from the business process model. Then, the data model may be used as a starting artifact in the IS software development process.  ...
