Configurable Declare

Description

Declarative languages are becoming more popular for modeling business processes with a high degree of variability. Unlike procedural languages, where the models define what is to be done, a declarative model specifies what behavior is not allowed, using constraints on process events. In his thesis, Dennis Schunselaar studies how to support configurability in such a declarative setting. He takes Declare as an example of a declarative process modeling language and introduces Configurable Declare. Configurability is achieved by using configuration options for event hiding and constraint omission. He illustrated our approach using a case study, based on process models of ten Dutch municipalities. A Configurable Declare model is constructed supporting the variations within these municipalities.
