Part of the IFIP – The International Federation for Information Processing book series (IFIPAICT, volume 257)

The paper makes the first steps towards a methodology to assess frameworks for business process analysis and information system design. The assessment instrument will be designed based on key elements of architectural frameworks such as Isa, Cim-Osa and Pera. Four major frameworks will be discussed: Isa-S95, Oagis, Scor and Cpfr.
