Abstract Layers in PASS – A Concept Draft

  • Conference paper

Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS,volume 422)

Abstract

In this paper we present a first draft for a concept of using abstract layers to extend the modeling capabilities of the subject-oriented graphical process-modeling language PASS. The concept is nonintrusive to existing PASS specification. It is argued how the Abstract Layered PASS (ALP) concept can be used to manage and integrate challenges and requirements found in subject-oriented and general process management research. Also a holistic discussion of similar or related approaches within and outside S-BPM is given.
