Abstract

Business process intelligence enables us to discover a variety of deep insights about business process execution, and it provides a set of useful methods for related decision-making activities. The hierarchical information that this paper focuses on is an important sort of information and it ought to be used in analyzing hierarchical properties of business processes. In this paper, we present a useful hierarchy generator to make it easier to perform analytics of hierarchical properties among business process entities. To this end, we define an abstracted meta-model that represents hierarchical relations among entity types in XPDL process models. According to the relational rules of the meta-model, a process entity hierarchy can be organized, analyzed, and visualized.
