Temporal, Semantic and Structural Aspects-based Transformation Rules for Refactoring BPMN Model

Mariem Kchaou, Wiem Khlif, Faiez Gargouri

Abstract

Refactoring a business process model (BPM) may improve its usability (understandability, modifiability) performance, and/or ease its maintainability. So-far proposed refactoring approaches have used either refactoring which focuses on structural aspects and/or semantic information. Nevertheless, these aspects provide a partial view of the model. As we show in this paper, combining the semantic and structural aspects with the temporal aspect decreases further the complexity of a business process modelled in BPMN and enhances its performance. Our method uses a set of transformation rules. We illustrate their efficiency through well-established performance measures (temporal and cost) and structural measures (complexity).
