The purpose of this chapter is to present tools and techniques for modeling and managing business processes. For this, business process modeling is defined and classified according to two levels of detail. These categories are chained together with the help of a transformation technique, which is explained with the help of an example. As soon as the number of processes increases, they cannot be managed manually. This motivates the need for a software system called a business process management system (BPMS). The properties of a BPMS are explained, and the components of a BPMS, which support the necessary requirements of managing processes, are also presented with their advantages. Also, the major principles of business process management (BPM) are presented in this chapter.
