PiE - Processes in Events: Interconnections in Ambient Assisted Living
In the era of Internet of Things (IoT), sensors distributed in the environment can provide essential information to be exploited. In this work we propose to exploit the advantage of a sensor-enriched environment for supporting the processes of several cooperating organizations. Our approach, PiE (Processes in Events), aims to identify and exploit interconnections between processes, without demanding the restructuring of their inner structure. Starting from a set of events generated by sensors and business processes (BPs), we propose a methodology for multiple process annotation. From the analysis of the events correlations, we can discover interconnections among processes of several organizations involved in the same goal and derived additional information about the processes being executed. An example within an Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) scenario is studied, where several organizations cooperate to provide social and health care to a subject.
