Case Management supports knowledge workers in defining, executing, and monitoring the handling of their cases, e.g. in healthcare or logistics. Fragment-based case management (fCM) allows to define a case model with the help of several process fragments, which can be flexible combined at run-time based on case characteristics and the case worker's intuition. Cases are often influenced by unknown exception, e.g., the sudden change of patient condition's or a storm delaying transports. So far,

Thereby, existing exception patterns for workflow systems are used and extended by the fragment-level for handling unknown events. In order to enable direct integration and avoid a duplication of semantics, precise rules are specified in order to clarify how to extend which pattern in detail. The applicability of the developed exception handling technique is exemplified on a last mile delivery for parcels.
