METHODOLOGICAL EXTENSIONS FOR SEMANTIC BUSINESS PROCESS MODELING

David de Francisco, Henar Muñoz, Noelia Pérez, Javier Martínez, Ivan Markovic

Abstract

Semantic Business Process Management (SBPM) aims, among other advantages, to facilitate the reuse of knowledge related to the definition of business processes, as well as to provide an easier transition from models to executable processes by applying semantic technologies to BPM. In this article the authors focus on extending the scope of knowledge being reused from executable processes to semantic models' scope. This is done by providing some methodological extensions to existing BPM methodologies in order to take advantage of semantic technologies during business process modeling.
