Together with his colleague Opens external link in new windowMathias Weske from the Opens external link in new windowHassno Plattner Institute, Opens internal link in current windowManfred Reichert will co-organize the Opens external link in new window2nd International Workshop on Process Engineering (IWPE 2016). The IWPE 2016 workshop is a satellite workshop organized in the context of the Opens external link in new windowBPM 2016 conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at 19 September 2016.

About the IWPE 2016 workshop:

The 2nd International Workshop on Process Engineering aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in the engineering aspects of process-aware information systems.  The goal of the workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in different disciplines that are relevant for this theme. Experts in the broad research areas of business process management and software engineering are invited to join. Stimulating discussions of engineering approaches on the edge of software engineering and business process management are expected. In particular, it will be interesting to discuss in how far software engineering methods and techniques in, for instance, requirements engineering, software architectures and testing can be used to tackle process engineering challenges. On the other hand, process management results could also complement software engineering techniques in areas like requirements elicitation and software architectures.

Further details and the Call for Papers can be found on the Opens external link in new windowIWPE 2016 homepage.

Invited Keynote, Int'l Workshop on Process Engineering (IWPE'15), Innsbruck, 31 August 2015

Abstract:
Business Process Management (BPM) has been evolving as a research discipline for more than a decade and a multitude of innovative concepts, methods and techniques have been suggested. However, there is still a huge gap between the promises of BPM in theory and its actual achievements in practice. A major reason for this gap has been the lack of established principles, methods and techniques for the engineering of more advanced process management technology and process-aware information systems, respectively, i.e., to implement process support features in a cost-effective and practical approach. To deal with this challenge, this keynote talk will take an engineering perspective on process-aware information systems. It will start with a discussion of the existing gap between BPM theory and its translation into reality. Then, it will elaborate on some of the fundamental requirements to be met when engineering process-aware information systems (e.g. scalability, usability, robustness, and integration capability). Furthermore, it will give examples of successful BPM engineering endeavours. Finally, it will discuss some of the challenges on the way towards well established principles, methods and techniques for process engineering.

Time patterns for process-aware information systems http://www.process-flexibility.com/index.php/item/176-time-patterns-for-process-aware-information-systems http://www.process-flexibility.com/index.php/item/176-time-patterns-for-process-aware-information-systems

New article online now: "Time patterns for process-aware information systems" by Andreas Lanz, Barbara Weber and Manfred Reichert. More information: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs00766-012-0162-3

Abstract

Companies increasingly adopt process-aware information systems (PAISs) due to their promising perspectives for improved business process support. Although the proper handling of temporal constraints is crucial in this context, existing PAISs vary significantly regarding their support of the temporal perspective of a business process. To make PAISs comparable with respect to their ability to deal with temporal constraints and to facilitate the development of a time-aware PAIS, this paper suggests 10 time patterns. All patterns are based on empirical evidence we gathered in case studies. Additionally, they are validated through a systematic literature review. Based on the time patterns, we then provide an in-depth evaluation of selected PAISs and academic approaches. Altogether, the 10 time patterns will not only facilitate the selection of technologies for realizing time- and process-aware information systems but can also be used as reference for implementing time support in PAISs.

Opens internal link in current windowManfred Reichert was invited colloquium speaker at the Opens external link in new windowTechnical Faculty of the Friedrich-Alexander University Nurnberg-Erlangen. In his presentation he addressed the fundamental challenges that need to be addressed in order to enable a flexible operational support of business processes in process-aware information systems. Furthermore, he presented selected concepts, technologies and tools developed in his research projects and tackling the aforementioned challenges.


Prof. Dr. Manfred Reichert: Initiates file downloadManaging Flexibility and Evolution Challenges in Process-Aware Information Systems: Scenarios, Technologies, Tools; Invited Colloquium Presentation, University of Nurnberg-Erlangen, 26 January 2015

Abstract

In today's dynamic business world, the success of a company increasingly depends on its ability to react to changes in its environment in a quick and flexible way. Companies have therefore identified process agility as a competitive advantage to address business trends like increasing product and service variability or faster time-to-market as well as to enable a close alignment of business with information technology. Along this trend, process awareness and service orientation have become prevalent paradigms in enterprise computing, and a new generation of process-aware information systems has emerged. Referring to real-world scenarios from various application domains, this lecture will present a review of fundamental flexibility and evolution challenges that exist for process-aware information systems. In particular, it will give insights into concepts, methods and technologies that foster flexibility in all phases of the process lifecycle.

A comprehensive treatment of this topic can be found in the Springer book on Opens external link in new windowEnabling Flexibility in Process-Aware Information Systems, which has been co-authored by Manfred Reichert and his colleague Opens external link in new windowBarbara Weber (University of Innsbruck).

Invited Talk at the University of Verona, Italy http://www.process-flexibility.com/index.php/item/115-invited-talk-at-the-university-of-verona-italy http://www.process-flexibility.com/index.php/item/115-invited-talk-at-the-university-of-verona-italy

University VeronaManfred Reichert gave an invited talk at the University of Verona, Italy. In today's dynamic business world, the success of a company increasingly depends on its ability to react to changes in its environment in a quick and flexible way. Companies have therefore identified process agility as a competitive advantage to address business trends like increasing product and service variability or faster time-to-market, and to ensure business-IT-alignment. Along this trend, a new generation of information systems has emerged-so-called process-aware information systems (PAIS), like workflow management systems or service orchestration engines. In his talk, Manfred addressed these flexibility needs and provided an overview of PAIS with a strong focus on methods and technologies fostering flexibility for all phases of the process lifecycle. This included flexibility support for pre-specified processes, the currently predominant paradigm in the BPM field as well as for loosely specified processes, which only partially specify the process model at build-time, while decisions regarding the exact specification of certain model parts are deferred to the run-time.
