Invited Keynote at the International Workshop on Modeling Inter-Organizational Processes, 19 March 2014, University of Vienna

Abstract
The economic success of companies more and more depends on their ability to rapidly implement new business processes as well as to flexibly adapt existing processes to changes in their environment. While modeling and flexibility issues of internal company processes are well understood nowadays, the controlled change of the interactions between partner processes in a collaborative setting (i.e., cross-organizational process) has not been sufficiently considered so far. If one partner changes its internal process in an uncontrolled manner, inconsistencies or errors regarding its interactions with the other partners might occur. Additionally, compliance of the changed cross-organizational process and the partner interactions, respectively, with imposed regulations and laws need to be guaranteed. As a particular challenge, the private parts of the internal partner processes are hidden to the other partners and hence are unknown to them.
This keynote will discuss research challenges to be tackled in this context. Further, it will give insights into selected results from the C³Pro research project which aims to enable change and compliance for cross-organizational processes.

Barbara will give a keynote at EDOC’14, which is organized by Manfred Reichert and his team of the university of Ulm. The keynote on gaining and in-depth understanding of the process of process modeling will be held on September 5th. Don’t miss it! Details can be found subsequently.

Abstract. Business process models have gained significant importance due to their critical role for managing business processes. Still, process models display a wide range of quality problems. For example, literature reports on error rates between 10% and 20% in industrial process model collections. Most research in the context of quality issues in process models puts a strong emphasis on the product or outcome of the process modeling act (i.e., the resulting process models), while the process followed for creating process models is only considered to a limited extent.

2014 08 15 Weber Keynote

The creation of process models involves the elicitation of requirements from the domain as well as the formalization of these requirements as process models. In this presentation the focus will be on the formalization of process models, which can be considered a process by itself­—the process of process modeling (PPM). In particular, this presentation will discuss how the PPM can be captured and analyzed. For this, it will present a specialized modeling environment, which logs all interactions of the process modeler with the modeling environment, thus, providing the infrastructure to investigate the PPM. The presentation will also shed light on the way how process models are created, present different behavioral patterns that can be observed, and discuss factors that influence the PPM, e.g., modeler-specific factors like domain knowledge or process modeling competence and task-specific factors. In addition, the presentation will provide an outline on how methods like eye movement analysis, think aloud, or the analysis of bio-feedback (e.g., heart rate variability) might enable even deeper insights into the PPM.

Prof. Dr. Manfred Reichert: Collaboration and Interoperability Support for Agile Enterprises in a Networked World: Emerging Scenarios, Research Challenges, Enabling Technologies (download as PDF)

Invited Keynote at IWEI'13, 28 March 2013, Enschede, The Netherlands

Abstract. The economic success of enterprises increasingly depends on their ability to react to changes in their environment in a quick and flexible way. Examples of such changes include regulatory adaptations (e.g. introduction of Sarbanes-Oxley or Basel II), market evolution, altered customer behavior, process improvement, and strategy shifts. Companies have therefore identified business agility as a competitive advantage required for coping with business trends like increasing product and service variability, faster time-to-market, and increasing division of labor along the supply chain. In particular, the agile enterprise should be able to quickly set up new business processes as well as to adapt existing ones. However, networked enterprises must not accomplish such process changes independent from the interactions they have with their partners and customers; e.g., business contracts and business compliance rules must be ensured after process changes as well. This keynote discussed major research challenges to be tackled in this context. Further, it presented advanced methods, concepts and technologies enabling collaboration and interoperability support for the agile enterprise in a networked world.

bpmuy-logoTitle. Enabling Flexibility in Process-aware Information Systems: Methods and Technologies

Abstract. The economic success of enterprises increasingly depends on their ability to react to changes in their environment in a quick and flexible way. Companies have heretofore identified business agility as a competitive advantage to address business trends like increasing product and service variability and faster time-to-market and process-aware information systems (PAISs) are getting increasingly popular. In contrast to traditional information systems, PAISs rely on an explicit description of business processes. In response to the need for flexible and easily adaptable PAIS, different aradigms and technologies for realizing flexible PAIS have emerged. Examples include adaptive, constraint-based and data‐driven approaches. This talk will present a comprehensive review of the challenges that exist for flexible PAIS, and it will give insights into concepts, paradigms and technologies for their realization. Flexibility issues are discussed along the phases of the process lifecycle (i.e., design, modeling, configuration, execution, monitoring, and evolution). Main focus of the talk will be flexibility requirements and enabling technologies for pre‐specified processes, the currently predominant paradigm for supporting business processes.

Prof. Dr. Manfred Reichert, Process and Data - Two Sides of the same Coin (download as PDF) Invited Keynote at CoopIS'12, 13 September 2012, Rome, Italy

Companies increasingly adopt process management technology which offers promising perspectives for realizing flexible information systems. However, there still exist numerous process scenarios not adequately covered by contemporary information systems. One major reason for this deficiency is the insufficient understanding of the inherent relationships existing between business processes on the one side and business data on the other. consequently, these two perspectives are not well integrated in existing process management systems. In his keynote, Manfred emphasized the need for both object- and process-awareness in future information systems, and illustrated it along several case studies. Especially, the relation between these two fundamental perspectives was discussed, and the role of business objects and data as drivers for both process modeling and process enactment was emphasized. In general, any business process support should consider object behavior as well as object interactions, and therefore be based on two levels of granularity. In addition, data-driven process execution and integrated user access to processes and data are needed. Besides giving insights into these fundamental properties, an advanced framework supporting them in an integrated manner was presented and its application to complex process scenarios shown. Overall, a holistic and generic framework integrating processes, data, and users will contribute to overcome many of the limitations of existing process management technology.

Overcoming Challenges of Reuse in Large Collections of Process Models

The increasing adoption of Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS), together with the reuse of process knowledge has resulted in process model repositories with large collections of process models. Understandability and maintainability of the process models in the repository are preconditions for their successful reuse. However, industrial process models display a wide range of quality problems impeding their comprehensibility and consequently hampering their maintainability and reuse. Literature reports, for example, error rates between 10% and 20% in industrial process model collections. Moreover, non-intention-revealing or inconsistent naming, redundant process fragments, and overly large and unnecessarily complex process models are typical quality problems which can be observed in existing process model collections. These problems have resulted in vivid research with the goal of obtaining a better understanding of factors influencing the quality of process models as well as techniques fostering their understandability and maintainability.

For obtaining high quality models it is essential to understand the factors which are influencing the quality of process models, but also the way how process models are created. This challenge can be approached by taking a cognitive perspective and by analyzing the process of creating and maintaining process models (in addition to the modeling artifacts created). In part I of the talk I will report on some of the findings obtained so far, discuss their implications for the reuse of process models, and outline future research directions.

Part II of this keynote covers different techniques for fostering understandability as well as maintainability of process models which were developed in our group like test driven modeling, literate process modeling, but also techniques for the refactoring of large collections of process models. Again implications for the reuse of process models will be discussed.

taprovizManfred Reichert was invited keynote speaker of the Int'l Workshop on Theory and Applications of Process Visualization (TaProViz'12), which took place in the context of the BPM'12 conference in Tallinn, Estland. In his keynote, Manfrd addressed the visualization of large and complex process models. He discussed the core challenges to be tackled in this context, followed by a presentation of concrete techniques and application examples, e.g., for abstracting complex process models. The latter were developed in the DBIS projects Proviado and proView. In particular, updatable process views as enabled in proView will allow users to adapt and change process models (see Chapters 7 and 9 of our book) based on related high-level abstractions.

Prof. Dr. Manfred Reichert, Visualizing Large Business Process Models - Challenges, Techniques, Applications (Download as PDF)
Invited Keynote at the Int'l Workshop on Theory and Applications of Process Visualization, Tallinn, Estonia, 3. September 2012

Large process models may comprise hundreds or thousands of process elements like activities, gateways, and data objects. Presenting such process models to users and enabling them to interact with these models constitute crucial tasks of any process-aware information systems (PAISs). Existing PAISs, however, neither provide adequate techniques for visualizing and abstracting process models nor for interacting with them. In particular, PAISs do not provide tailored process visualizations as needed in complex application environments. This keynote presents examples of large process models and discusses the challenges to be tackled when visualizing and abstracting such models. Further, it presents a comprehensive framework that allows for personalized process model visualizations, which can be tailored to the specific needs of different user groups. First, process model complexity can be reduced by abstracting the models, i.e., by eliminating or aggregating process elements not relevant in the given context. Second, the appearance of process elements can be customized independent from the process modeling language used. Third, different kinds of visualization (e.g., process diagrams, process forms, textual process descriptions) are supported. Finally, it will be shown how such tailored visualizations of process models serve as basis for changing and evolving process models at a high level of abstraction.
