Time: 12:00-13:00 EET
Host: Georgia Kapitsaki (

Business process modelling has been given great attention due to its crucial role in developing computer-based systems that support (and automate) organizational processes. Few studies in the literature focus on comparing various process modelling techniques, taking into account purposes, goals and other attributes. Instead; large amount of the research conducted concentrate on applying different modelling techniques to demonstrate organizational processes without clear understanding of the relative merits or the application in the right context. This session will introduce Riva and ARIS as business process modelling methods. It will look at modelling the organizational process architecture as a whole, then investigating the use of the modelling tools in visualizing individual processes. Comparison of the two methods will be provided to help decide the application of either methods in particular contexts.
