In this chapter we review related work and briefly present approaches and technologies used in the development of the presented approach for multilevel business process modeling and data analysis. Multilevel business process modeling builds on existing research on multilevel domain modeling, especially multilevel objects . The proposed modeling approach qualifies as data- or artifact-centric business process modeling  and relies on the notion of behavior-consistent specialization of life cycle models . Multilevel business process models are executable in an automated way, the resulting traces being subject to business process intelligence. The multilevel business process modeling approach relies on UML (with OCL) as modeling language and for the definition of the formal metamodel; XML serves as the format for logical representation.
