Business Process Management

Business Process Management What is business process management? What is business process? What is the problem?

Example: RISE Workshop Activity, Case, Participant, Process, Resource, Data Call for papers Submission Review Selection Accepted? Accepted papers Rejected papers Registration Presentation yes no

Example: RISE Workshop cont. What to do if we want To add/remove an activity in the process? To change the way of “review”? The “selection” to be automatic? Is the process reusable? Entirely or partially? Is the process executable?

To add/remove an activity in the process?

To change the way of “review”?

The “selection” to be automatic?

BPM Complexity comes from the change of requirements Tends to process-aware or process-oriented systems (from data-oriented) Make the distance between design and execution of process shorter

Tends to process-aware or process-oriented systems (from data-oriented)

Modeling Approaches

UML activity diagram, Petri Nets, etc

Workflow patterns, perspectives

Implementation (process enactment service)

Centralized/Embedded workflow engine

Service Oriented

Standards: WfMC, BPEL, BPMI, OMG etc.

BPM: Our solution Why do we propose to use a formal specification language? More precise semantic, no ambiguity Automatic verification and test generation Execution via prototype generation Enhanced reusability, modularity (Object-Orientation)

COOPN approach

COOPN Concurrent Object-Oriented algebraic Petri Nets Petri Nets Algebraic - all types are defined Object-Oriented - encapsulation Concurrent - synchronizations counter 0 x x+1 x==9? inc out counter 0 x x+1 x==9? inc out counter 0 x x+1 x==9? inc out // 0 0 0

Concurrent Object-Oriented algebraic Petri Nets

COOPN cont. Three types of modules algebraic Abstract Data Type (ADT) Class Context Well-defined semantic with formal foundation, graphical representation Axiomatic behavior description, declarative Event :: condition :: pre -> post Inc :: n<9 :: p (n) -> p (n+1) When event Inc occurs, if ( n<9 ), take n from place p , and put n+1 into place p .

Workflow Patterns

Workflow Patterns Initiator: Wil Van der Aalst, Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands More than 20 patterns for control-flow Flexible way to solve problems Reusable Perspectives: Control, Data, Resources etc.

Initiator: Wil Van der Aalst, Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands

More than 20 patterns for control-flow

Flexible way to solve problems

Reusable

Perspectives: Control, Data, Resources etc.

Transactional Patterns Complement of common workflow patterns States of process instance are transactional in the model More interesting with resource perspective, e.g. dinning philosophers, resources allocation problem

Complement of common workflow patterns

States of process instance are transactional in the model

More interesting with resource perspective, e.g. dinning philosophers, resources allocation problem

Transactional Patterns cont. take free // // // // // // // // P2 eat P2 think P1 eat P1 think F1 * P2 * eat think P1 * eat think F2 * take free

Prototyping & Integration

Prototyping Automatic Java code generation Embedded transition engine JavaBeans-liked prototype COOPNBuilder environment Simulation before integration

Automatic Java code generation

Integration Service-Oriented Environment Enactment system DBMS ERP systems MIS systems Process controller Remote system Generated Pluggable process controller services services Process controller Process controller Process controller

Integration cont. Process enactment system should guarantee the execution of process The responsibilities between the process controller and the enactment system should be clearly defined Automatic integration is possible

Process enactment system should guarantee the execution of process

The responsibilities between the process controller and the enactment system should be clearly defined

Automatic integration is possible

Conclusions & Future Work
