IT-Systems Engineering BA


In an endeavor to improve the performance of a company, business processes play an important role. (Graphical) models of business processes are an effective tool to communicate, document, and continuously improve processes. Organizing and maintaining these valuable assets of a company can get a very complex task and understanding the relations between the models becomes more and more difficult with the size of the model collection. These issues spawned a lot of interesting research challenges.

If the business process model collection reaches a certain size, so called business process repositories are required to effectively store and maintain it. Closely related is the question, as to how to relate and present the models to the business analyst. Unique process architectures were proposed and serve different purposes.

In this seminar the master students have the opportunity to make their contribution to this emerging field of business process management.
