Session Overview
Current approaches to business process definition using various modeling techniques allow business rules and alternate scenarios to be captured as part of the main business process logic. But this approach leaves the business experts / process owners with little flexibility to manage and control business processes which are subjected to dynamic changes in the business environment. Allowing the business process to evolve in an agile manner requires flexibility in the business process definition. In this paper we propose modeling methods which can be used to capture the flexibility dimensions of a business process. The aim is to define elements of flexibility and model these elements separately from the process logic at different levels of abstraction. This will help in designing a flexible business support system and also assist in analysis of the business process during process redesign. Further this approach provides the organization with an environment in which rapid changes in processes can be implemented effectively. We provide guidelines to apply the proposed methods for different requirements of flexibility in processes.
