About this book

This book presents a proposal for designing business process management (BPM) systems  that comprise much more than just process modelling.

Based on a purified Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) variant, the authors present proposals for several important issues in BPM that have not been adequately considered in the BPMN 2.0 standard. It focusses on modality as well as actor and user interaction modelling and offers an enhanced communication concept. In order to render models executable, the semantics of the modelling language needs to be described rigorously enough to prevent deviating interpretations by different tools. For this reason, the semantics of the necessary concepts introduced in this book are defined using the Abstract State Machine (ASM) method. Finally, the authors show how the different parts of the model fit together using a simple example process, and introduce the enhanced Process Platform (eP2) architecture, which binds all the different components together. The resulting method is named Hagenberg Business Process Modelling (H-BPM) after the Austrian village where it was designed.

The motivation for the development of the H-BPM method stems from several industrial projects in which business analysts and software developers struggled with redundancies and inconsistencies in system documentation due to missing integration.

The book is aimed at researchers in business process management and industry 4.0 as well as advanced professionals in these areas.

Reviews

“The book will interest researchers and even practitioners in the consultancy business who work in the field of business process management and modeling and workflow definition. It is worth studying for those who look for more accurate, usable, and user-friendly solutions for defining automated workflows and business processes.” (Bálint Molnár, Computing Reviews, November, 2016)
