BPMN, business rules, and the free will

April 3rd, 2015 | Posted by st in Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) | Business Rules (BR) | KnowGravity | Model Driven Enterprise Engineering (MDEE) - (Comments Off on BPMN, business rules, and the free will)

In this months edition of the Business Rules Journal an article written by our Knowbody Markus Schacher was published. The title of the article is”BPMN, Business Rules and the free will” and is featured in the April 2015 Edition, Volume 16, Issue 4 (ISSN: 1538-6325). Furthermore a related article will be published in the german journal “OBJEKTSpektrum” in the second half of this year.

Below you can read the introduction to the article by Markus Schacher:

In this article I claim that the OMG’s “Business Process Model and Notation” (BPMN) includes a well-known symbol that represents the free will. By relating process models to the free will, I will explain why there is often a big gap between designed business process models and how such processes are executed by humans in reality. In this context, I will also show how the free will and business process models relate to structural and operative business rules as defined by the OMG specification Semantics of “Business Vocabulary and Business Rules” (SBVR).
