This course introduces concepts of business process modeling using the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) industry standard. Participants will learn the elements of process models and their precise meaning. Based on a thorough understanding of business process models, the last part of the course covers decision models using the Decision Model and Notation (DMN). Decision models complement process models by representing concrete, operational decisions, both with their structure and their decision logics. The course centers around concepts and language to describe and analyze business processes and decisions. It does not cover methods on how to model, improve, monitor or implement business processes. Still, a deep understanding of business processes and decisions is a useful basis for these activities.

Kursinformationen

Business process models play a central role in describing, analyzing, improving, implementing, and monitoring business processes. They serve as a communication vehicle for professionals with different background and expertise, ranging from business administration, quality management, and organizational development to process improvement, systems architectures, and software development.

Recently, there is a strong focus on operational decisions in business processes, since they influence the process flow, its performance and quality. Decision models complement process models by representing concrete, operational decisions, both with their structure and their decision logics.

Prof. Dr. Mathias Weske

Professor Mathias Weske leitet das Fachgebiet Business Process Technology am Hasso-Plattner-Instituts der Digital Engineering Fakultät der Universität Potsdam. Uns interessieren praktische Probleme im Geschäftsprozessmanagement; wir adressieren diese durch formale Methoden und bauen nützliche Prototypen. Seine Forschungsschwerpunkte sind prozessorientierte Informationssysteme, Process Mining und Event Processing. Das BPT-Forschungsteam verfügt über eine gute Bilanz bei der Entwicklung von Prototypen, was erhebliche Auswirkungen auf Forschung und Praxis hatte, einschließlich Projekte wie Oryx und jBPT. Dr. Weske ist Autor des ersten Lehrbuchs zum Geschäftsprozessmanagement und hielt 2013 den ersten groß angelegten öffentlichen Online-Kurs zu diesem Thema ab. Mathias Weske ist Gründungsmitglied der BPM-Konferenzreihe und seit September 2017 Vorsitzender des Lenkungsausschusses.
