Business Processes Modeling through Multi Level Activity Diagrams

Denis Del Villano, Gaetanino Paolone, Paolino Di Felice

Abstract

The usage of UML 2.0 activity diagrams at two different levels of abstraction is proposed to consolidate an already known business modeling approach for the development of large enterprise software applications. In this way a high continuity between the phases of business modeling and system modeling is obtained. Moreover, to keep a better control of the completeness of the business modeling artifacts, we recommend to fill out matrices that make explicit the link among business activities, business use cases and business objects involved in the automation of the information system.m.
