2010 (English)In: BUSINESS INFORMATION SYSTEMS, PROCEEDINGS / [ed] Abramowicz W; Tolksdorf R, 2010, Vol. 47, 158-170 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Reuse of business process models is the act of designing business processes by using existing process models. Reuse of business process models has been considered as a way to reduce the cost of modeling business processes from scratch. In order to support reuse a critical mass of process models is required which justifies the effort of maintaining a process model repository. However, recent studies show that complete repositories which can support reuse are not yet available. One of the reasons is that stakeholder requirements for process model repositories have not been sufficiently investigated. Therefore, the purpose of this work is to define requirements of a process model repository from stakeholders' (researchers and practitioners) perspective. In this study, we start by eliciting preliminary requirements (defined as propositions) through an exploratory study followed by an empirical validation of the propositions. Based on the analysis of the results we define as a set of requirements for a process model repository.
