Business Processes, Process Logic and Information ArchitectureA Tentative Case Study

Coen Suurmond

Abstract

Subject of this paper is modelling the process logic of the business processes of an enterprise, taking into account both the formal and the informal aspects of the organisation, but disregarding how the business processes have developed over time in operational practice. The aim is to arrive at a stable information architecture that has sufficient flexibility to absorb developments in the environment and in the enterprise itself in the presentation layer and business rules, without affecting the information architecture itself.
