Process Flexibility News

Together with our research partners from the Universities of Opens external link in new windowValencia (Clara Ayora, Victoria Torres und Vicente Pelechano) and Opens external link in new windowInnsbruck (Barbara Weber), Opens internal link in current windowManfred Reichert has developed the VIVACE framework for systematically evaluating variability support in process-aware information systems. VIVACE provides the first empirically-grounded framework for process engineers enabling them for the first time to assess existing process variability approaches as well as to select that variability approach meeting their requirements best in a given application context. Furthermore, VIVACE helps engineers in implementing process-aware information systems that support process variability along the entire process lifecycle.

Representing the Opens internal link in current windowInstitute of Databases and Information Systems (DBIS), Opens internal link in current windowProf. Dr. Manfred Reichert and Opens internal link in current windowNicolas Mundbrod attended the Opens external link in new window2nd European BPM Roundtable in Vaduz, Liechtenstein, on May 15, 2014. Opens external link in new windowProf. Dr. Jan vom Brocke, director of the organizing Opens external link in new windowInstitute of Information Systems, University of Liechtenstein, was very pleased to welcome more than 150 participants from all over Europe. The organizers offered a well-prepared program comprising ten speakers, who gave inspiring insights of conducted research and industrial projects, as well as an intensive panel discussion in the afternoon.

BPM is not just about making diagrams. The real challenge is to realize information systems that support processes without jeopardizing flexibility.

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.

_ Albert Einstein

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
