Abstract

A system that enables reuse of process solutions should be able to retrieve "common" or "best practice" pattern solutions (common modelling practices) from existing process descriptions for a certain business goal. A manual extraction of common modelling practices is labour-intensive, tedious and cumbersome. This paper presents an approach for an automated extraction of process goals from Event-driven Process Chains (EPC) and its annotation to EPC functions and events. In order to facilitate goal reasoning for the identification of common modelling practices an algorithm (G Tree-Construction) is proposed that constructs a hierarchical goal tree.
