Process reference models play an important role for the alignment and configuration of commercial off-the-shelf Enterprise Systems to requirements of an organization. Recently, Configurable Event-driven Process Chains (C-EPCs) have been proposed as a language to support the model-driven configuration of such Enterprise Systems. While some problems of generating correct EPCs from a configured C-EPC have been discussed, up to now there is no implementation of an algorithm available to automate the configuration task. This paper presents a configuration algorithm that is guided by a minimality criterion. It details and extends a previous algorithm that has only been sketched so far. As a proof-of-concept the algorithm has been implemented.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
