On the Refactoring of Activity Labels in Business Process Models
Large corporations increasingly utilize business process models for documenting and redesigning their operations. The extent of such modeling initiatives with several hundred models and dozens of often hardly trained modelers calls for automated quality assurance. While formal properties of control flow can easily be checked by existing tools, there is a notable gap for checking the quality of the textual content of models, in particular, its activity labels. In this paper, the authors address the problem of activity label quality in business process models. They designed a technique for the recognition of labeling styles, and the automatic refactoring of labels with quality issues.
