From Business Process Modelling to Business Process Automation

Kuldar Taveter

Abstract

We first describe an agent-oriented business modelling technique that enables to create business process and domain models that are executable by software agents. The technique consists of the steps of analysis by goal-based use cases and design by the extended AOR Modelling Language. We then show how the models created can be represented in XML and executed by agents.
