Collaborative Business Process Management (CBPM)
FITMAN-CBPM is a web-based, integrated platform for the semantically-enhanced design, execution and monitoring of Business Processes in the scope of service-oriented Manufacturing Ecosystems. Targeted at the Virtual Factory domain, and based on open standards like Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0, it is delivered as a web portal in order to maximize its collaborative nature. The development of business process in a formal notation requires multi-disciplinary teams, to share domain specific and ICT knowledge required to implement them. The FITMAN Collaborative Business Process Management SE (FITMAN-CBPM) simplifies this collaboration allowing a clear separation of concerns, and providing user friendly online tools.
CBPM introduces the concept of Platform Federation which allows multiple installations to share a common security domain - i.e., authenticated users of one system can access other systems in the federation
Model a business process by composing existing services within a graphical, standard based development environmen, run business processes on the platform, interact with human tasks through a web UI, monitor and manage your process instances
Allows to select existing web services from a catalogue to match process tasks, using semantics (i.e., annotations) in the scope of a reference ontology, and bind process tasks to web services, to automate their execution at runtime.
