This paper describes a method for organizations to perform process modeling in a decentralized and concurrent manner. The approach is based on the idea that modeling organizations' processes can be performed by individuals actually performing the processes. Instead of having a central and devoted group of people to analyze, understand, model and improve processes, real performers are held responsible to model and improve their own processes concurrently. The paper also summarizes the lessons learned by application of the method in two organizations.

A method for decentralized business process modeling
Türetken, Oktay; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2007)
This thesis study proposes a method for organizations to perform business process modeling in a decentralized and concurrent manner. The Plural method is based on the idea that organizations’ processes can be modeled by individuals actually performing the processes. Instead of having a central and devoted group of people to understand, analyze, model and improve processes, individuals are held responsible to model and improve their own processes concurrently. These individual models are then integrated to f...
An Approach for introducing a set of domain specific components
Yiğit, İbrahim Onuralp; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2015)
In this thesis, a preliminary methodology is proposed for the determination of a set of components to populate the domain model of a Software Product Line infrastructure. Software Product Line based approaches focus on the reusability of assets for a family of software products. For effective reuse, the definition of reusable assets in this thesis considers variability in a domain. The approach is based on variability specifications that is rooted in Feature Models and is reflected to a component modeling n...
A Comparison of Process Ontology Discovery from Organizational Guidelines in Two Different Languages
Gurbuz, Ozge; Demirörs, Onur (2017-09-01)
Process ontologies contain organization's process elements which are related to the business activities, in a structured format. Once organizations establish process ontologies, searching process information as well as discovery, modeling and automation become more efficient. Process ontologies are frequently developed from organizational resources such as guidelines, regulations and procedures by interpreting the document, discovering the process information and building the ontology. The studies depict th...
A Comparative Evaluation of Two Computer SupportedCollaborative Work Systems for Supporting Collaborative BusinessProcess Modeling Activities
Fındık Coşkunçay, Duygu; Çakır, Murat Perit (2018-10-01)
In this study, a comparative evaluation of different Computer-Supported Collaborative Work CSCW environments was conducted to reveal their constraints and affordances for supporting synchronous collaborative business process modeling cBPM activities online. For this purpose, two case studies were carried out with two CSCW systems that differ in terms of their interaction design features for supporting joint work. The dual-eye tracking method was employed to monitor how the participants focused their attenti...
An approach for eliciting functional requirements of the software intensive systems based on business process modeling
Yıldız, Okan; Güçlü, Nusret; Demirös, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2002)
In this thesis, eliciting system functional requirements based on business requirements during software intensive systems acquisition or development process is investigated and an approach is proposed for this purpose. Concepts and current problems within the framework of business requirements are investigated with a general literature review of requirements engineering and technology acquisition. Determination of requirements of IT system to be acquired according to the business objectives and base lining ...
