Now-a-days, modern organizations build large repositories of process models to describe and document their daily business operations. One reason for the large number of process models is the need to adapt with different business contexts, i.e. process variants. Automated maintenance of the consistency between process variants is an important goal that saves the time and efforts of process modelers. The authors present a query-based approach to maintain consistency among process variants called BPModelMasher. In particular, they maintain the link between the variant process models by process model views.
