Quality metrics in software engineering have shown their potential as guidance to improve software designs and make them more understandable and easier to maintain. Various efforts recently aimed at the development of quality metrics for process models. In this paper, the authors propose a new notion of coupling, which has been used successfully in software engineering for many years. It extends other work by specifically incorporating the effects of different types of connectors used on a process model's coupling level.
