Quality Assurance for BPMN models
University of Camerino, Italy
Problems discovered during the modeling phase permit to save a lot of money with respect to issues discovered later, and when specific deployment activities are already in place. For such a reason it is in general important to complement modeling methods with strategies to check their qualities, and in particular with automatic tools permitting to spot possible issues. The lesson, after a general introduction, will focus on the Business Process Modeling Notation, and qualities such as understandability and correctness. Understandability will be introduced considering a specific guidelines framework that provides suggestions on how to derive BPMN models that are easier to understand. Correctness will be discussed considering a formal semantics developed according to the SOS style and to the possibility to automatically check general properties such as safeness and soundness, as well as domain specific properties.
