This is an extended abstract of our article1 accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing Journal proposing an approach for the conceptual modeling and design-time analysis of the data operations performed by a business process on a database. Our approach leverages a uniform formal representation that captures a process model, a conceptual database schema, and the data operations performed by the process on the database. We then show how such a formal model can be queried to obtain insights into the informational perspective of business process models and, in turn, support process modelers and analysts in reasoning about process (re- ) design and improvement. The approach is evaluated with a controlled experiment and a proof-of-concept implementation.

Abstract

This is an extended abstract of our article1 accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing Journal proposing an approach for the conceptual modeling and design-time analysis of the data operations performed by a business process on a database. Our approach leverages a uniform formal representation that captures a process model, a conceptual database schema, and the data operations performed by the process on the database. We then show how such a formal model can be queried to obtain insights into the informational perspective of business process models and, in turn, support process modelers and analysts in reasoning about process (re- ) design and improvement. The approach is evaluated with a controlled experiment and a proof-of-concept implementation.
