Business Process Modeling Based on Norm

Business Process Modeling Based on Norm

Considering the high quality of SOA and central role of the business process in the enterprise, this paper com- bines the first and the second areas, research on business process modeling in the process of building service-ori- ented information system. Business process modeling problem focused on business process modeling method and language. Current modeling methods such as, busi- ness process diagram, IDEF series model and the event process chain etc, they lack of full attention to the orga- nization and their role. It is difficult to describe complex business process constraints. The most popular Business Process Execution Language BPEL also difficult to gra- phical modeling, lack of support for business rules and other issues [5].

A Metamodel Driven Business Process Modeling Methodology and Its Integrated Environment for Reusing Business Processes

A Metamodel Driven Business Process Modeling Methodology and Its Integrated Environment for Reusing Business Processes

Reusing business process models and best practices can improve the produc- tivity, quality and agility in the early development phases of enterprise soft- ware systems. To help developers reuse the business process models and best practices, we propose a methodology and an integrated environment for business process modeling driven by the metamodel. Furthermore, we pro- pose a process-template design method to unify the granularity and separate the commonality and variability of business processes so that business process models can be reused across different enterprise software systems. The proposed methodology enables to create reuse-oriented business process templates before the business process modeling. To support the proposed methodology, we developed an integrated environment for creating, reusing and verifying the business process models. As the key techniques, we describe the methodology and its integrated environment, including a metamodel and notations. We applied the methodology and integrated environment to an actual enterprise software development project, and evaluated that the prod- uctivity of business process modeling is improved by at least 46%. As the conclusion, this paper contributes to prove the effectiveness of the me- ta-model driven business process modeling methodology for the reuse of business process models.

Comparison of Business Process Modeling and Business Process Simulation Tool Survey

Comparison of Business Process Modeling and Business Process Simulation Tool Survey

BPS. The devices have been assessed on their demonstrating capacities, recreation abilities and potential outcomes for yield examination. The devices were chosen for various reasons. Field were chosen due to their astounding reputation in recreation. The two instruments performed well on this viewpoint. The previously mentioned apparatuses, notwithstanding, were not just assessed on their particular "known" solid focuses, obviously additionally on every single other perspective pertinent when demonstrating and reenacting business forms. Both business process the board apparatuses missed the mark on their reproduction abilities. The three residual devices, AnyLogic, Arena and Bizagi Tools, each of the three meet all requirements for BPS examines. These instruments have various rules that decide the appropriateness of the device for a specific reenactment think about. AnyLogic process demonstrating language of EPCs and experiences issues to show work process designs. Be that as it may, its solid point is the reasonableness for correspondence with procedure proprietors, which as often as possible is a significant condition in such reproduction ponders. Field is a solid reproduction device that demonstrated to be proper for BPS. The displaying with this apparatus depends on predefined fabricating squares, which can be adjusted and broadened if essential. In this apparatus, it is essential to have a significant information about the structure hinders that are accessible and about the careful method of activity. At last, Bizagi Tools depends on the formal displaying strategies. This opens numerous potential outcomes for the formal confirmation of the reproduction model. Like demonstrating in Arena, a significant information is required, yet AnyLogic and Bizagi varies from Arena in that regard that the subsequent models are difficult to comprehend by general procedure proprietors who ought to have the option to comprehend and approve the model.

Modeling and Analysis of Incoming Raw Materials Business Process: A Process Mining Approach

Modeling and Analysis of Incoming Raw Materials Business Process: A Process Mining Approach

Various techniques have been developed to document processes in business organization. Traditionally, organization document their organization’s chart to describe functions within the organization. But this traditional approach fail to describe the business process within the organization. To fill this gap, many works have been done to model business processes [9]. A business process model — a graphical visualization to represent the business processes in a company — cannot be entirely accurate or complete because every modeler have different perspectives. Several techniques developed to compensate the drawbacks, those are flowchart, data flow diagram, role activity diagram, role interaction diagram, Gantt chart, Colored Petri Net, object oriented method, and workflow technique [10].

Knowledge modeling using CraftCASE tool 

Knowledge modeling using CraftCASE tool 

based on the fundamental concepts of state-machine process modeling mixed with the object-oriented approach. This method was originally developed to capture the knowledge necessary for the develop- ment of IT systems, but which has revealed increas- ing potential for more general knowledge based system development. The work on BORM originally started in 1993 and was intended to provide seam- less support for the building of object oriented software systems based on pure object-oriented languages together with object databases, such as ‘Gemstone’. It is now realized that this method also has a significant potential in capturing knowledge of business processes, business data and business issues.

An evaluation method for Business Process Management products

An evaluation method for Business Process Management products

There are different business process modelling languages available, which include UML 2 Activity Diagrams (AD), the Business Process Definition Metamodel (BPDM), the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) (Figure 14 shows an example of a business process modelled in BPMN), Event Driven Process Chains (EDPC), IDEF3, Petri Nets, Role Activity Diagrams (RAD) (List and Korherr 2006) and the more recently developed Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (WS-BPEL) which is also executable (Andrews, Curbera et al. 2003; Alves, Arkin et al. 2007). There is still a debate on what a standard business process modelling language should look like, and it seems unrealistic that a consensus will ever be reached (van der Aalst, Leymann et al. 2007). However interoperability among the different languages is necessary because this will allow the interchange of business process models between different products (Smith and Fingar 2003).

A MEASUR and RUP Combined Business Modeling Method

A MEASUR and RUP Combined Business Modeling Method

As two kinds of IS development methods, although both MEASUR (Methods for Eliciting, Analyzing and Specifying User’s Requirement) and RUP (Rational Unified Process) provide their own Business Modeling Method (BMM), each has obvious merits and demerits. In order to keep the merits and avoid the demerits at the same time, some researchers have correlated the two BMMs. In [1], Zhiwu Xie et al. pointed out that Ontological Dependencies (OD) in Ontology Charts (OC) derived from MEASUR can be modeled as either nested classes or inheritances in Unified Modeling Language (UML) Class Diagrams (CD) and agents’ norms derived from MEASUR for actions on business terms can be modeled in UML Activity Diagrams (AD). In [2-3], continuing the effort in [1], Rodrigo Bonacin and Yasser Ades et al. provided rules for transferring OC into UML CD respectively. However, until now, no research has been done to compare the two BMMs respectively from the semantics, pragmatics and social world of the semiotic framework and devise a MEASUR and RUP combined BMM, which keeps the merits and avoids the demerits of the two BMMs at the same time.

Extending BPMN Business Process Model with SBVR Business Vocabulary and Rules

Extending BPMN Business Process Model with SBVR Business Vocabulary and Rules

integration-oriented research initiatives undertaken in various areas of application [36], [37]. However, taking into account the scope of this paper, research works of the most interest were undertaken after the advent of OMG’s business modeling-oriented standards (BPMN and SBVR in particular). Vanthienen and Goedertier proposed an approach to implement SBVR business rules into business processes management life cycle using a service- oriented architecture (SOA) [6], [366]. They presented the architecture, which consisted of three layers: business rules and business process layer, services and components layer, application layer. Ali et al. [38] described business rules as separate model used as an integral component of BP modeling; business processes were defined, arranged and are directly depending on the business rules model. Milanovi¡ et al. [39] offered to integrate BPMN with R2ML. They developed a new modeling language rBPMN (Rule- based Process Modeling Language). The main idea of this proposition was to extend some existing elements of BPMN with the BR property. Zhao et al. [40] analyzed semantic programing language (SPL) to facilitate the orchestration of semantic web services (SWS). They offered a method to integrate BR and business processes using SWS.

Business Process Modeling Linguistic Approach – Problems of Business Strategy Design

Business Process Modeling Linguistic Approach – Problems of Business Strategy Design

Practical implications - when working with the business model concept in practice, its technical and linguistic legitimacy is initially highly limited. In the process of gaining legitimacy, however, a collective lock-in to the current strategic identity may arise. Managers have to be aware of these limitations and need to achieve an appropriate balance within the organization Hacklin, F.- Wallnoefer, [6]. Yuksel, I, Dagdeviren, [21] postulated that the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) method suggests that business performance should be evaluated not only by using financial indicators but also simultaneously considering non-financial indicators. It has been revealed in the review of relevant literature that despite the satisfying levels achieved in conceptual and theoretical dimension of BSC, the method has some deficiencies in terms of implementation on a quantitative basis and that there remain some problems to be resolved subject of this study covered the measurement and evaluation dimension of BSC.

Modeling for the Sensor based Open System Application

Modeling for the Sensor based Open System Application

In this study, we perform UML integration modeling after analyzing the service oriented business process based on SOA. Each process is defined in the form of a peer in order to allow the process derived from the modeling of the business process to interact with other processes in the P2P mode. This paper proposes an efficient method of modeling business processes in a P2P manner based on the use of SOA throughout the modeling steps, in order to enhance the efficiency of the services. This results in the accurate modeling of an enterprise and allows for the more efficient and visual integration of processes between enterprises.

ICTS AND ECONOMIC GROWTH IN AFRICAN COUNTRIES

ICTS AND ECONOMIC GROWTH IN AFRICAN COUNTRIES

Our research comes to supplement the previous researches that have represented business process modeling languages. The representation performed in this paper is focuses on two most widely used iterative method based on Use-Case scenarios for purchase processes: static structure and dynamic views. To clarify how to use this method we applied it in purchase process by some steps. Use-Cases should be kept as simple as possible. Occasionally, however, we will encounter irreducible complexity and will need to formulate complex Use-Cases. Rather than trying to capture this complexity with lots of branching and alternative flows, it is easier, and less error prone, to model the main flows through this branching network as separate scenarios. The results presented in this paper as some models in UML. In addition, these models that facilitates the analysis phase of purchase process and make processes clear from perspective of analysts, managers, employers and also users. On the other hand, the aim in this paper will make the design phase easier and explained as a future work to complete the design phase of the purchase operations in implementation and testing phases.

With respect to the above-mentioned facts and postulates, the BSC System might play a role not only closely related to the firm or company business performance evaluation tool; however it might be considered to be business model concept representative as well. In general, the BSC System consists of five perspectives: financial, customers, internal business process and learning and growth perspective, while one more perspective may be added to those perspectives as well. This perspective is denoted as technological perspective and is closely related to business technological support and with problems of governance and risk management too [7].

IMPROVING BUSINESS PROCESS MODELING USING RECOMMENDATION METHOD

IMPROVING BUSINESS PROCESS MODELING USING RECOMMENDATION METHOD

development in information technology including industrial informatics. Enterprise Systems integrate business processes and align IT to support business strategy and workflow technology is essential and is threaded through the very core of the system architecture. Business process is one of the main tool to develop workflow technology. Business process specifies various business logics and handles different business operations. Thus, business process modeling [4][5] plays important role in operating modern enterprises. However, business process is time consuming process which often involves selecting concrete activities to be performed such as determining their execution order and dealing with the exceptions that may occur. Business process is complex process. Besides, in modern commerce, both frequent changes of custom demands and the specialism of the business process require the capacity of modeling business processes for enterprises in an effective and efficient manner. Existing processes improving business modeling use workflow mining and process retrieval and require much manual work.

Financial Intermediation and Economic Growth: Bank Credit Maturity and Its Determinants

Financial Intermediation and Economic Growth: Bank Credit Maturity and Its Determinants

important properties Petri-net has difficulties dealing with complex workflow control patters based on multiple instances, advance synchronization, cancellation [Aal02]. The difficulty lies due to the fact that Petri-net depends heavily on state-based rather than the event/message based. Due to distributed nature of today’s information technologies (middleware, web services) underling techniques need to have both state as well as message handling capabilities [War 05]. BPEL on the other hand tries to satisfy these two requirements and is becoming popular among we services community as a workflow language. However, BPEL also has difficulties enforcing complex control flow patterns and the language itself is complex. This section discusses challenges Petri-net and BPEL face handling aforementioned workflow control flow patterns successfully. We note that an existing workflow modeling framework called “YAML” [Aal02] is also capable of handling all these control flow patterns. The difference between YAML and web bonds is that YAML has been specifically designed to enforce these control flow patterns (by essentially augmenting a Petri net based system) by adding explicit constructs for each control. In contrast, web bonds have been designed as a generic framework for coordination/collaboration among distributed systems and these happen to be capable of handling these workflow control flow patterns.

The Research on Enterprise Process Management Based on ARIS

The Research on Enterprise Process Management Based on ARIS

Over the years, Group Company launches the process management and information system improvement which has laid a solid foundation for enterprise management. Group leaders require to propose process management energetically, to clear out the responsibility of each position and department by the way of graphically, and indicate the process points of risk control as well as related institution, organization responsibility and control standard in a graphical way, by which to connect institutional procedure and totally change the previous method of program management. Therefore, a project team was built to use the present ARIS process management platform to solidify and deepen the pre-project achievement(the business process of the Group Company has been successfully completed), according to the demand of expressing the all businesses macroscopically and detailing all job specifications in microscopically, to establish a process management system which long-term stable operation. Based on the above requirements, the Group Company developed relate pilot research and exploration, selected an area of it to go on research on the combination of process, internal control and institution procedure.

Volume 37: Kommunikation in Verteilten Systemen 2011

Business process modeling and software system design is usually done via graphical modeling languages [RAHW06, WDHR06]. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) [OMG10b] offers a comprehensive and well-defined modeling framework and is the de facto standard for modeling and specifying information systems. Providing modeling support for duties in business process models using a standard notation like UML is intended to serve as a common language to bridge the communication gap between software engineers and non-technical stakeholders (see, e.g., [MJ10]). This means, integrated modeling of duties, responsibilities, and processes allows to document and communicate how duties are implemented in which parts of a business process and who is responsible for enforcing them.

Ontological Foundations for Strategic Business Modeling: The Case of Value, Risk and Competition

Ontological Foundations for Strategic Business Modeling: The Case of Value, Risk and Competition

so that one can create strongly axiomatized ontologies that approximate as well as possible to the ideal ontology of the domain. This expressivity is preferred over computational tractability, since reference ontologies are meant to be used by hu- mans and not machines. As demonstrated in the literature, UFO and OntoUML provide enough constructs to accurately describe complex social domains, while supporting the clarification and disambiguation of overloaded terms. Examples in- clude ontologies for services (Nardi et al., 2015), legal relations (Griffo et al., 2018), resources and capabilities (Azevedo, Iacob, et al., 2015), organizational structures (Pereira and Almeida, 2014), requirements (Guizzardi, Li, et al., 2014), and com- munities (Almeida and Guizzardi, 2013). Second, because OntoUML is a visual language, as it has been originally designed as a profile of the Unified Modeling Language (UML). This facilitates communication about the concepts defined in an ontology with domain experts, which is particularly relevant when developing the ontology, but also with potential users. Third, because the “OntoUML Toolkit” contains a number set of tools to facilitate the ontology engineering process, such as ontological design patterns (Guizzardi, Graças, et al., 2011) and anti-patterns (Sales and Guizzardi, 2015), visual model simulation (Benevides et al., 2010), and transformations for codification technologies (Barcelos et al., 2013; Rybola and Pergl, 2016).

TOWARDS SECURE CLOUD COMPUTING USING DIGITAL SIGNATURE

TOWARDS SECURE CLOUD COMPUTING USING DIGITAL SIGNATURE

Figure 3 shows the generic activity diagram of our design methodology for new multi-business products. The diagram indicates that the design process starts with the activity of the expression of market needs conducted by the MKTP Department, and ends with the mass production of the final product. Between these two activities comes a set of activities composing the design process of a new product as previously defined in the use case diagram (Figure 1), rules conditioning the activities’ succession are pointed out if necessary. For example, we can’t move on to defining the specifications of the product unless the proposed product development project is validated and approved by management. Otherwise, we proceed to the validation of the proposed product itself in order to clarify whether there would be a change in its definition, or the product design project will be abandoned.

Research and Application of FAHP in Bidding Quotation for Petroleum Geophysical Prospecting Project

Research and Application of FAHP in Bidding Quotation for Petroleum Geophysical Prospecting Project

In 1977, the concept of analytic hierarchy process abbreviated as AHP was first proposed by an American operational research expert T. L. Satty [3]. The general idea of AHP method is decomposing a problem to study, thus the problem is di- vided into different elements, then we will group and sort each element, and dif- ferent groups have different levels, so as to form a hierarchical structure. Then we compare the elements at different levels, and judge the importance between each element, and then combine the subjective judgments of people to give the overall importance order of the decision plan.

Sampathkumaran, Partha B. (2013): Computing the cost of business processes. Dissertation, LMU München: Fakultät für Mathematik, Informatik und Statistik

The chapter Cost calculation with patterns 5 proposes the methodology for calculation of cost, reliability and business cost of the process. It takes business pro- cess diagrams as input for calculation and divides them into patterns. It covers the different patterns that are commonly seen in the business processes and achieves a formula based calculation mechanism for the same. The chapter also introduces the sensitivity analysis and how it can be used to find areas of optimization within a process. An important step when bringing together the business process together with well- known theoretical foundations is to take care of the transactional properties in the execution. The process definitions should include mechanisms for compensation and boundaries so as to limit the scope of a process flow. We take the semantics defined for flow composition languages and extend the same to show development of cost, reliabil- ity and business cost when using patterns in a business process. This is covered in the chapter Theoretical basis for cost calculation 6.
