From conceptual process models to running systems: A holistic approach for the configuration of enterprise system processes
Dreiling, Alexander, Rosemann, Michael, Van Der Aalst, Wil, & Sadiq, Wasim (2008) From conceptual process models to running systems: A holistic approach for the configuration of enterprise system processes. Decision Support Systems, 45(2), pp. 189-207.
This paper proposes a method which aims at increasing the efficiency of enterprise system implementations. First, we argue that existing process modeling languages that feature different degrees of abstraction for different user groups exist and are used for different purposes which makes it necessary to integrate them. We describe how to do this using the meta models of the involved languages. Second, we argue that an integrated process model based on the integrated meta model needs to be configurable and elaborate on the enabling mechanisms. We introduce a business example using SAP modeling techniques to illustrate the proposed method.
