Efficiently Querying Business Process Models with BeehiveZ
The technology of business process management is being more widely used, and there are more and more business process models. In this paper, the authors show how to query a large number of models efficiently with BeehiveZ. Four types of queries are all supported in BeehiveZ, i.e. exact query based on structure, similarity query based on structure, exact query based on behavior, similarity query based on behavior. BeehiveZ provides different indexes to facilitate the efficient query processing of different types of queries. To make BeehiveZ more applicable, label similarity is considered.
