Abstract

In this chapter, we summarise our work on the Hagenberg Business Process Modelling (H-BPM) method, a novel and homogeneous integration framework for business process modelling based on a rigorous semantics for BPMN 2.0 process diagrams, which also includes indispensable extensions in the form of horizontal refinements. The proposed extensions address actor modelling, closely tied to an intelligible way for denoting permissions and obligations by means of deontic logic, user interaction modelling, and an enhanced communication concept. All these modelling aspects can be tied together by means of the enhanced Process Platform (\({\textit{eP}}^{2}\)). We round off with a discussion about future work, including ongoing work on a view-based data approach, process adaptability, and exception handling.
