  • Publication number: 20120265507
    Abstract: Process model merging receives data representative of a first model that models a first process and a second model that models a second process, and determines, based on the data and a predetermined plurality of basic model manipulation operations, atomic differences in the second model relative to the first model. Compound differences are determined in the second model relative to the first model. A user is informed of the atomic differences and the compound differences. The user is allowed to select a set of the plurality of basic model manipulation operations. A modified first model is obtained by applying the selected set of basic model manipulation operations to the first model.

  • Publication number: 20100131421
    Abstract: Changing a business process model involves several aspects: (1) given a set of change operations, dependencies and conflicts are encoded in dependency and conflict matrices; (2) given a change sequence for a process model M, the change sequence is broken up into subsequences such that operations from different subsequences are independent; (3) given a change sequence for a process model V1 and another change sequence for a process model V2, conflicts between operations in the different change sequences are determined; (4) the process structure tree can be used to localize dependency computations, yielding a more efficient approach to determining dependencies; and (5) the process structure tree can be used to localize conflict computations, yielding a more efficient approach to determining conflicts.

  • Publication number: 20090187881
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for production of a difference log in a data processing system The difference log defines differences between process models defined in system memory. For each of the process models, model structure data provided in memory defines a hierarchy of SESE regions representing the structure of that model. Also provided in memory are model comparison data defining correspondences between elements of the models, and region comparison data defining correspondences between regions of the SESE region hierarchies for the models. The model comparison and region comparison data are analyzed to identify differences between the SESE region hierarchies, and a difference log defining said differences is produced. In preferred systems, the model structure data and the region comparison data is computed for the models, and the difference log has a hierarchical structure corresponding to the structure of the process models.
