Abstract

Processes modeling is done for a number of reasons in relation to enterprise modeling, business process modeling and information systems development in general, and this paper will give an overview of main approaches to different types of process modeling. Modeling approaches are structured according to the main modeling perspective being used. In conceptual modeling in general, one can identify 8 modeling perspectives; behavioral, functional, structural, goal-oriented, object-oriented, language action, organizational and topological. In the paper we will present both historical and current examples of process modeling according to these different perspectives, and discuss what perspectives are most appropriate to achieve the different goals of modeling.
