2013-04-25 Thao Defense

In her PhD, Thao Ly developed a framework for supporting business process compliance along the complete process lifecycle. Starting with the process design phase, SeaFlows provides solutions for capturing compliance requirements and for enriching process models with imposed compliance rules. Going beyond pure compliance rule documentation, SeaFlows enables the verification of process models but also already running process instances against imposed compliance rules.
Thao's did her research in the context of the Seaflows project, partially funded by DFG and conducted in close cooperation with the University of Vienna, Research Group Workflow Systems and Technology.
