In this book we introduce the notion of multilevel business process which has its origins in the hierarchical organization of companies; the multilevel business process pyramid serves as the business-theoretic model. The formal representation of multilevel business processes is a pre-requisite for their (semi-)automated execution using information technology. The multilevel business artifact (MBA) serves as the conceptual modeling construct for the representation of multilevel business processes, putting emphasis on the data objects involved in the business processes.
