From conceptual process models to running workflows : a holistic approach for the configuration of enterprise systems
Dreiling, Alexander, Rosemann, Michael, & van der Aalst, Wil M.P. (2005) From conceptual process models to running workflows : a holistic approach for the configuration of enterprise systems. In PACIS 2005 Proceedings, AIS Electronic Library (AISeL), Bangkok, Thailand, pp. 363-376.
The configuration of comprehensive Enterprise Systems to meet the specific requirements of an organisation up to today is consuming significant resources. The results of failing implementation projects are severe and may even threaten the organisation’s existence. This paper proposes a method which aims at increasing the efficiency of Enterprise Systems implementations. First, we argue that existing process modelling 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 motivate that an integrated process model based on the integrated meta model needs to be configurable and elaborate on the mechanisms by which this model configuration can be achieved. We introduce a business example using SAP modelling techniques to illustrate the proposed method.
