There are quite few models in the literature for the analysis and modeling of business processes. However, there is not a model that is general enough to include all practical aspects of business processes for analysis. This is one of the major problems for these models used in practice. The goal of this paper is to identify a set of critical dimensions under which real business processes could be adequately represented and analyzed. The paper first provides a brief review of definitions of business processes and workflows, next the assumptions in major models, and then proposes a set of desired dimensions for model building.
