The dissertation contributes the integration of process management technology with smart mobile devices. It examines how specific process activities can be executed on smart mobile devices in a robust and context sensitive fashion. Furthermore, the dissertation examines what additional challenges arise when executing processes on mobile devices when compared to their execution on stationary systems. A concrete framework for modeling mobile activities in a process environment, as well as their robust and context sensitive execution is presented. The framework was validated with a thorough prototypical implementation as well as multiple studies.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
