Visualisation of compliant declarative business processes
MetadataShow full item record
Organisations typically have to cope with large numbers of business rules and existing regulations governing the business in which they operate. Due to the size and complexity of those rules, maintenance is difficult and it is increasingly complicated to ensure that each business process adheres to those rules. As such, automated extraction of business processes from rules has a number of clear advantages: (1) visualisation of all possible executions allowed by the rules, (2) automated execution and compliance by design, (3) identification of "inefficiencies" in the business rules. Existing approaches, however, only allow to generate partial traces based on input specifications and cannot handle many different input cases resulting in a full process. This paper presents a formal method to visualise and operationalise such sets of rules as a verifiable business process that is compliant by design and allows us to analyse all possible execution paths. In addition, it maintains information of all distinct input cases, to preserve dependencies between consecutive exclusive paths.
