Description

In this course we look at the problem of business process compliance.

Generally, business processes describe the working procedures within an organization. Still, organizations have to make sure that working procedures follows certain policies and regulations, i.e., compliance rules. Here, we study how to reason about the compliance of business processes with such compliance rules. We base our reasoning on temporal logic.

The following topics are covered in the lecture:

 

  1. Introduction
  2. Modeling Concurrent Systems

    1. Petri nets
    2. Kripke structures

  3. Temporal Logics

    1. Linear Temporal Logic, LTL
    2. Computational Tree Logic, CTL

  4. Model Checking

    1. General idea of model checking
    2. LTL: Büchi Automata
    3. CTL model checking: idea

  5. Compliance Checking

    1. BPMN-Q to specify compliance rules
    2. State space reduction techniques
    3. Visualization of compliance violations
    4. Data in compliance checking
    5. Decision-Aware Compliance Checking

  6. Consistency of Compliance Rules

    1. Detecting conflicts in rules
    2. Deriving process templates
