Abstract

Evolving process architectures involves incremental enhancements to process components and inter-connections with time. In order to keep track of evolution of both parts and the whole, traceability through this evolution over a time continuum is essential. The paper presents a tool to manage and reason through evolution of process architectures. The tool uses graph based analysis techniques to facilitate reasoning through continuous modifications made to evolving process architecture. It implements a technique called Process Edification, achieving evolution and its traceability around both parts and the whole. The ideas behind the tool are illustrated and the tool is demonstrated with the help of a case of an evolving BPMN process.
