Abstract

With the growing demand for producs and services, organizations are considering ways to better manage their processes. Being the business process management (BPM) the most widely used approach in this context. However, traditional methodologies of BPM do not encopass all different needs yet. Some stages of the BPM lifecycle do not present the information needed to meet the requirements of some organizations. Some of those still use legacy systems that not directly support business process management systems (BPMS). Therefore, for instance, it is dificult to mesure performance or to update processes. In this paper we present an extension based on the BPTrends methodology. It intends to approach problems such as the aforementioned ones, which are not preditected by traditional methodologies. To evaluate the extension, tests were carried out in a real scenario. Furthermore, it was possible to observe, e.g., that the extension allowed BPM to be adopted with ease compared with traditional metodologies, that do not have the possibility to model a legacy system and need to wait organizations to invest on systems compatible with a BPMS.
