ROADMap: a novel method for role-based and decentralized process modeling

Ertuğrul, Ali Mert
Role-based and decentralized process modeling allows actors to focus on modeling their own role behaviors and requires them to communicate and negotiate with each other in order to form a consistent and integrated process model. Due to the collaborative nature of role-based and decentralized process modeling, negotiations among the actors who play different roles have a crucial impact on modeling activity of overall process. Based on the communication and negotiation time among the actors, these types of process modeling approaches vary. In this study, we propose a role-based and decentralized process modeling method, called ROADMap, that keeps the strengths and improves the weaknesses of current ones. The exploratory study results reflect that these strengths and weaknesses can be categorized under five aspects namely flexibility, conflict prevention, information awareness, overall view and latency. The proposed ROADMap method considers these aspects and it is supported with a web and cloud-based tool and a notation. A multiple case study is conducted in order to validate the proposed ROADMap method. Case study results indicate that ROADMap method is a successful role-based and decentralized process modeling method for process stakeholders in organizations.


Unified Process Modeling with UPROM Tool
Aysolmaz, Banu; Demirörs, Onur (2014-06-20)
UPROM tool is a business process modeling tool designed to conduct business process and user requirements analysis in an integrated way to constitute a basis for process automation. Usually, business process models are not utilized systematically to develop related artifacts, specifically when a process-aware information system is to be developed to automate those processes. This results in completeness, consistency and maintainability problems for those artifacts. Unified business process modeling methodol...
An investigation of the relationship between joint visual attention and product quality in collaborative business process modeling: a dual eye-tracking study
Fındık Coşkunçay, Duygu; Çakır, Murat Perit (2022-02-01)
Collaborative business process modeling is a collective activity where team members jointly discuss, design, and document business processes. During such activities, team members need to communicate with each other to coordinate the modeling activities, propose and justify changes, and negotiate common terms and definitions. Throughout this process, stakeholders should be aware of when and what kind of changes have been made by each team member on the shared space so that they can discuss design ideas and b...
An Emprical examination for collaborative nature of business process modeling
Fındık Coşkunçay, Duygu; Çakır, Murat Perit; Department of Information Systems (2016)
In this study, factors that contribute to interaction quality of collaborative group members in a computer-supported collaborative business process modeling context were investigated with qualitative and quantitative methods. Initially, interaction quality factors were identified based on a review of related theoretical frameworks and qualitative analysis of log files from a dual eye-tracking experiment. A rating scheme was then developed to assess the quality of group interactions. A research model, that r...
Simulation and performance evaluation of a distributed real-time communication protocol for industrial embedded systems
Aybar, Güray; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
The Dynamic Distributed Dependable Real-Time Industrial communication Protocol (D3RIP) provides service guarantees for Real-Time traffic and integrates the dynamically changing requirements of automation applications in their operation to efficiently utilize the resources. The protocol dynamically allocates the network resources according to the respective system state. To this end, the protocol architecture consists of an Interface Layer that provides time-slotted operation and a Coordination Layer that as...
Modeling, simulation, and control of a quadrotor having a 2-dof robotic arm
Bulut, Neb; Turgut, Ali Emre; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, modeling, simulation, and control of a combined system that consists of a quadrotor and a 2-DOF robotic serial manipulator are presented. Firstly, the kinematic and dynamic model of the combined system are obtained. Then, the equation of motion of the combined system is derived by using Lagrange-D’Alembert formulation. Based on these equations, control algorithms are developed to control the combined system. Firstly, the cascaded PID controllers are designed by using the linearized decoupled...
