Abstract

Business processes comprise an indispensable element of the behavior of contemporary organizations rendering Business Process Management essential. Information models are a valuable tool for providing information on business processes. As with any model, business process models serve a specific purpose. This purpose makes it nearly impossible to adequately communicate them to all user groups within an organization, because each user group has a specific perspective of business processes rendering certain aspects irrelevant. To address this problem, configurative process models can be used to provide information on business processes to different user groups in an appropriate and efficient manner. In this paper, we will outline a methodology, which facilitates the creation of configurative process models.
