In order to automate and manage the processes of business of the organizations, it is advisable to the use of systems of management of processes of business (BPMS - Business Process Management Suite) with a high level of quality and efficiency. We believe that the definition and proposal for a catalog (set) of specific requirements to these systems is one of the important steps in this sense. This work presents a set of requirements for BPMS, serving the guide to your development and improvement. The catalog has been drawn up on the basis of work in the literature and in the experience of experts (including experiences of assessment and elicitation requirements for systems of BPM).
