This Modeling Handbook is meant as general guideline for everybody;who does work on either:
The objective of business process modeling is to describe business processes in a consistent and comprehensive way. Human speech is often not precise enough to clearly explain economic sequences. This is especially the fact if a process consists of various logical connections that imply parallel and sequential execution of process steps. In order to reduce the amount of misinterpretation and to accelerate the know-how transfer in terms of process relevant information, it is key to use settled graphical modeling techniques.
This section describes the derivation of service requirements based on a process landscape. Modeling of services refers to the structuring of functionality that is needed from a process point of view. That means after agreeing on a process structure, the consumer site of services needs to be defined. When there is a clear picture from a process point of view which operations are necessary to support the process steps, mapping on existing service providers is possible. Furthermore, the activity of mapping consumer models against provider models reveals gaps and additional development requirements which need to be implemented.
