ER'12 Tutorial on Process Flexibility

In the context of the 31st Int'l Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2012), which took place from October 15-18 in Florence, Italy, Barbara Weber and Manfred Reichert organized a tutorial on process flexibility. The ER conference series is a leading international forum for presenting and discussing current research and applications for which the major emphasis is on conceptual modeling.

In their tutorial, Barbara and Manfred presented part of their new Springer book on process flexibility. In particular, they emphasized that the real challenge in BPM is not to draw diagrams, but to realize robust information systems that support business processes without jeopardizing flexibility. Barbara and Manfred discussed the challenges that exist for enabling flexibility in process-aware information systems (PAISs), and they gave detailed insights into concepts, methods and technologies for realizing flexible PAISs.

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
