Detection of Semantic Relations between Business Process Activity Labels

Lobna Makni, Nahla Zaaboub Haddar, Hanene Ben Abdallah

Abstract

Determining similarities between business process models needs to be resolved in several cases, e.g., when business processes must be merged, configured or integrated; when reusing fragments of process models, etc. Similarity can be tackled at the semantic, structural and/or behavioral levels. In this paper, we are interested in the semantic level similarity between business process models. More specifically, we present a method for detecting semantic relations between activity labels in process models belonging to the same business domain.
