Understanding the evolution of business artifacts will enable business analyst to discover more insight from process execution data. In this context, describing how the artifacts are wired, helps in understanding, predicting and optimizing the behavior of dynamic processes. In many cases, however, process artifacts evolve over time, as they pass through the business's operations. Consequently, understanding the evolution of artifacts becomes challenging and requires analyzing the provenance of

We propose to extend Provenance techniques to artifact centric BPMs in order to perform cross cutting concerns on BPMs. Provenance is pre-requirement of addressing cross cutting concerns, which will provide information regarding artifact instance creation and its evolution during its life cycle. Due to dynamic nature of dynamic processes and declarative structure of Artifact Centric BPM systems, it's vital to make sure how an artifact instance actually executed and evolved during its processing in run time.
