Abstract

Recently, the omg has been working on developing a new standard for a business process management notation (bpmn). This standard development results in documents that contain the newest approved version of a standard or a standard proposal that can be amended. It is our vision that such a standard document, that also serves as a specification for bpmn modeling tool developers could benefit from a fact-based model in which the same domain knowledge is represented conceptually as a list of concept definitions (including naming conventions), a set of information structure diagrams and the constraints or business rules that govern the instances of the information structure diagrams. In this paper we will show precisely, how such a fact-based conceptual view on a standard document can be created, and we will show how a fact-based approach can improve the completeness of a specification.,.
