Çakar, Başak
Business process models are vital assets of organizations. The organizations prefer to use one of the many modeling methods and notations according to its features like tool support, size of user base, ease of use. During the last decade bottom up process modeling approaches such as S-BPM started to become popular among organizations. Many organizations have large process model assets modeled in a top down fashion. As a result, for most organizations to adopt bottom up process modeling approaches the existence of transformation algorithms is critical. In this work, model transformation is proposed as a method to migrate from eEPC to S-BPM. Direct mapping rules are defined to transform models and the application of these rules is demonstrated by on a real world case studies.
