Approaches combining methods of Operational Research with Business Process Model and Notation: A systematic review

Tomaskova, Hana
Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm
Background: Business process modelling is increasingly used not only by the companies' management but also by scientists dealing with process models. Process modeling is seldom done without decision-making nodes, which is why operational research methods are increasingly included in the process analyses.


An automated quality measurement approach for business process models
Gürbüz, Özge; Demirörs, Onur; Güceğlioğlu, A. Selçuk; Department of Information Systems (2011)
Business process modeling has become a common need for organizations. Therefore process quality is also having an important role for the organizations. The most of the quality studies are based on cost and time which can be analyzed during or after the execution of the business processes. There are also quality measures which help analyzing measures before the execution of the business processes. This type of measures can give early feedback about the processes. There are three frameworks defined in the lit...
Global Constraints on Feature Models
KARATAS, Ahmet Serkan; OGUZTUZUN, Halit; Doğru, Ali Hikmet (2010-09-10)
Feature modeling has been found very effective for modeling and managing variability in Software Product Lines. The nature of feature models invites, sometimes even requires, the use of global constraints. This paper lays the groundwork for the inclusion of global constraints in automated reasoning on feature models. We present a mapping from extended feature models to constraint logic programming over finite domains, and show that this mapping enables using global constraints on feature attributes, as well...
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...
Forecasting of Product Quality Through Anomaly Detection
Dinç, Mehmet; Ertekin Bolelli, Şeyda; Özkan, Hadi; Meydanlı, Can; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (2020)
Forecasting of product quality by means of anomaly detection is crucial in real-world applications such as manufacturing systems. In manufacturing systems, the quality is assured through tests performed on sample units randomly chosen from a batch of manufactured units. One of the major issues is to detect defective units among the sample test units as early as possible in terms of test time and of course as accurate as possible. Traditional way of detecting defective units is to make use of human experts d...
Feature modeling and automated analysis for an embedded software product family
Fedakar Gönül, Gülseren; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
In the context of software product line engineering, feature models are used for modeling variability and commonality in product families. This thesis presents a basic feature model for a commercial television set product family. This work consists of three stages. First, a feature model is constructed, based on the analysis of the product family requirements. The constructed model is supplemented with a feature glossary. FeatureIDE is used as the model editor. Feature attributes, not supported by FeatureID...
