Business Process Management (BPM) includes methods, techniques, and tools to support the design, enactment, management, and analysis of operational business processes. It can be considered as an extension of classical Workflow Management (WFM) systems and approaches. Although the practical relevance of BPM is undisputed, a clear definition of BPM and related acronyms such as BAM, BPA, and STP are missing. Moreover, a clear scientific foundation is missing. In this paper, we try to demystify the… Expand
An Overview of Business Process Management
BPM (Business Process Management) includes support for business process analysis, design, implementation, management methods, techniques, and tools. This chapter introduces the origin of BPMExpand
Business Process Management: A Comprehensive Survey
TLDR
The practical relevance of BPM and rapid developments over the last decade justify a comprehensive survey and an overview of the state-of-the-art in BPM. Expand
Semantic Business Process Management: Scaling Up the Management of Business Processes
TLDR
It is argued that semantic BPM, that is, the enhancement of BPM with semantic Web services technologies, provides further scalability to BPM by increasing the level of automation that can be achieved. Expand
Automated Business Process Management
TLDR
An integrated solution is proposed, that allows to complete the BPM cycle in a single application and with most of the steps automatically and was applied in practice in the context of a research project and the results are being integrated into a commercial product. Expand
An Introduction to Business Process Modeling
TLDR
The basic concepts of modeling and implementing business processes using current information technologies and standards, such as Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) and Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), are introduced. Expand
Business process simulation - tool survey
In the nineties, more and more attention was raised for process oriented analysis of the performance of companies. Nowadays, many process aware information systems are implemented (e.g., workflowExpand
Business Process Quality Management
TLDR
This chapter presents the SIQ framework that on the one hand integrates concepts and guidelines from existing ones and on the other links these concepts to current research in the BPM domain. Expand
Evaluating non-functional aspects of business process management systems
TLDR
This paper presents the extension of a proposed methodology for the systematic evaluation of BPMS with a detailed definition of non-functional aspects to be evaluated, and a set of test cases for their evaluation. Expand
