Workshop Summary

This workshop introduces delegates to the basic principles and concepts underlying business process modelling and workflow. The importance of business process modelling and its role in the design of software systems will be emphasised. This workshop will provide coverage of the OMG Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN). Delegates will be taken through the use of BPMN using case study and a set of exercises from a familiar domain. Case studies from the Repository, e-Science and e-Framework Programmes will be used to contextualise the proposed methods and notations described in this workshop.


Professor Balbir S. Barn has a research background in methodologies and software application development toolsets – including business process modelling toolsets. Prior to academia, he worked extensively on Component Based Development methods and design of component modelling toolsets at Texas Instruments Research Labs. Balbir was the lead investigator on the COVARM project - a recently completed project funded by JISC to explore the potential automation of elements of the course / programme validation business process within the Higher Education sector.
