Flexible realization of business processes using existing services

When realizing executable business process models, in most situations process specifications collide with specific properties of existing services. In this paper we propose an approach for relaxation of the business process specification to enable flexible integration between the process and existing services. The approach is based on the notion of visibility, which allows a categorized relaxation of the process specification by not requiring every process state to be distinguished after the process is realised with existing services. The categories of visibility presented in this paper are applied by indicating flexible elements in the process design phase. The presented approach stimulates the alignment between business processes and existing services, facilitating a larger scale of transparent process realisations.
