This paper proposes architecture for describing, analyzing, designing, and modifying business processes. The architecture provides a conceptual framework for viewing business processes at the highest level. However, the architecture is not limited to a high-level or conceptual view of business. It maps with technical rigor into the detail of business process re-engineering and information engineering. Its role is to supply the missing executive view of these disciplines and to forge the link between the processes of concern to business and the detail of the systems that automate them.
