Abstract

Reference models are a widely accepted means to facilitate reusable information system and organizational design. At present, besides domain knowledge, the configuration of reference models requires a thorough understanding of both the reference model and the language it is captured in. This hinders the involvement of domain experts without specialized modeling background, in the configuration of reference models. In this paper, we propose a questionnaire-driven approach to reference model configuration which abstracts away from the modeling language. For illustration, we show how this approach can be applied to reference process models captured in the Configurable EPC notation. To demonstrate its applicability, the proposal has been implemented as a toolset that guides users through the configuration process by means of a form-based interface.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare 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.
