Market competition is pushing companies to differentiate themselves from competitors by developing customised services in addition to their original production (either physical or digital). It drives the emergence of service process modelling to describe precisely the composition of services. To this end, this paper presents the key concept of the transformation of EA* and BPMN models into simulation workflows. Then, it introduces the implementation done with the SLMToolBox that is a service…

Resource-based modeling and simulation of business processes

This paper introduces an approach that exploits both model-driven principles and the DEVS (Discrete Event System Specification) formalism to first annotate the BPMN model with the allocation of task resources described in terms of performance and reliability properties and then transform the annotated BPMn model into a DEVS-based model, which can be eventually executed to get the analysis results of interest.

BPMN modeling for HLA based simulation and visualization

The modeling phase of the HLA execution process is supported in order to explicitly design the desired steps of orchestration between distributed HLA federates through the interpretation of a business process diagram.

Enterprise modelling: from early languages to models transformation

The evolution of enterprise modelling techniques from the divergence era to the convergence period is described and the recent advances in the use of enterprise models through model-driven approaches, interoperability problem-solving and simulation are focused on.
