A Rigorous Semantics for BPMN 2.0 Process Diagrams by Felix Kossak, Christa Illibauer, Verena Geist, Jan Kubovy,

By Felix Kossak, Christa Illibauer, Verena Geist, Jan Kubovy, Christine Natschläger, Thomas Ziebermayr, Theodorich Kopetzky, Bernhard Freudenthaler, Klaus-Dieter Schewe

This booklet presents the main entire formal specification of the semantics of the enterprise approach version and Notation 2.0 general (BPMN) to be had to this point, in a mode that's simply comprehensible for quite a lot of readers – not just for specialists in formal tools, yet e.g. additionally for builders of modeling instruments, software program architects, or graduate scholars focusing on enterprise strategy management.

BPMN – issued via the thing administration staff – is a conventional average for enterprise strategy modeling. although, significant drawbacks of BPMN contain its restricted help for organizational modeling, its in simple terms implicit expression of modalities, and its loss of built-in consumer interplay and information modeling. extra, in lots of circumstances the syntactical and, specifically, semantic definitions of BPMN are erroneous, incomplete or inconsistent. The booklet addresses concrete matters about the execution semantics of industrial tactics and offers a proper definition of BPMN procedure diagrams, that can function a valid foundation for extra extensions, i.e., within the type of horizontal refinements of the middle language.

To this finish, the summary kingdom laptop (ASMs) process is used to formalize the semantics of BPMN. ASMs have validated their price in a number of domain names, e.g. specifying the semantics of programming or modeling languages, verifying the specification of the Java digital laptop, or formalizing the ITIL swap administration process.

This type of development promotes extra consistency within the interpretation of accomplished types, in addition to actual exchangeability of types among varied instruments. within the outlook on the finish of the booklet, the authors finish with featuring extensions that handle actor modeling (including an intuitive strategy to denote permissions and obligations), integration of user-centric perspectives, a polished communique idea, and information integration.
