An Approach Towards User Interface Derivation from Business Process Model
- 380 Downloads
This paper proposes an approach for user interface (UI) generation and updating. A role-enriched business process model is developed with detailed description for tasks and associated data. The model is specified in an extended BPMN. A set of control flow patterns and data flow patterns are identified based on the proposed model for UI derivation. A comprehensive set of constraints and recommendations are specified for supporting the UI generation and updating. This early work will lay a foundation towards an effective tool for supporting UIs development and maintenance.
