Chapter 11 - Concretizing Loosely-Specified Processes

In many application domains pre-specifying the entire process model is not possible. While parts of the process model are known at build-time, others are uncertain and can only be specified during run-time. To better deal with such uncertainty, decisions regarding the exact specification of selected parts of the process has to be deferred to run-time. Since decision deferral can be realized in many different ways, this chapter first introduces a taxonomy for it. It then introduces different decision deferral patterns like Late Selection, Late Modeling & Composition, Iterative Refinement, and Ad-hoc Composition. Finally, examples of concrete implementations of the different patterns are presented.
