Model merging in the context of configurable process models

Description

While the role of business process models in the operation of modern organizations becomes more and more prominent, configurable process models have recently emerged as an approach that can facilitate their reuse, thereby helping to reduce costs and effort. Configurable models incorporate the behavior of several model variants into one model, which can be configured and individualized as necessary. The creation of configurable models is a complicated process, and tool support for it is in its early steps. In her thesis, Borana Luka evaluates two existing approaches to process model merging which are supported by tools and test an approach to model merging based on the similarity between models. Borana’s work resulted in a paper presented in the 2011 International Workshop on Process Model Collections.
