With the growing complexity of today's information systems, business process modeling has gained a lot of attention by both academic and industry communities. The authors conducted a representational analysis of a set of business process and business rule modeling languages by using the well-known Bunge-Wand-Weber (BWW) representation model. Their paper comparatively assesses their ontological deficiencies and explores different possibilities of combining process modeling languages with rule modeling languages in order to achieve the highest ontological completeness. They demonstrate that a combination of BPMN and R2ML (rBPMN) offers the highest ontological completeness among the languages studied.
