EXTENDING THE EPC AND THE BPMN WITH BUSINESS PROCESS GOALS AND PERFORMANCE MEASURES

Birgit Korherr, Beate List

Abstract

The Event-Driven Process Chain (EPC) and the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) are designed for modelling business processes, but do not yet include any means for modelling process goals and their measures, and they do not have a published metamodel. We derive a metamodel for both languages, and extend the EPC and the BPMN with process goals and performance measures to make them conceptually visible. The extensions are based on the metamodels tested with example business processes.
