Abstract: One of the new trends in BPM is data-centric. The Artifact-oriented BPM (business process management) is a representative technology which is data-centric. Conceptual model is a key step to design the Artifact-oriented business process, but there is no mature tool to model and analyze it. Taking advantage of predicate/transition Petri-Net, Ar/T-Net is proposed. Based on its properties, the structure of Artifact is defined by nested relation schema, which is as predict. On the analysis of reachability, the function of Ar/T-Net is discussed.

Key words: business process management (BPM), Artifact, conceptual model, predicate/transition Petri-Net, nested-relation schema

摘要: 以数据为中心是业务过程管理发展的新趋势,面向Artifact的业务过程管理是一种具有代表性的以数据为中心的业务过程管理技术。概念模型设计是面向Artifact的业务过程设计的关键步骤,但目前还没有成型的建模和分析工具。利用谓词/变迁Petri-Net建模的优势,根据Artifact的特点,用嵌套关系模式定义Artifact的结构;以描述Artifact的嵌套关系模式作为谓词,提出了一种适合于概念模型设计的谓词/变迁Petri-Net,即Ar/T-Net。以可达性分析为例,讨论了Ar/T-Net的功能。
