Organizations are under increasing scrutiny to document their compliance to regulatory requirements. To this end, they have to formally document their operating procedures to support their compliance management efforts. Both process modeling languages and rule modeling languages are candidates for the documentation of organizational policies and procedures. While both types of languages are currently used to document organizational practices, little work has been done to understand their synergies and overlap. In this paper, the authors use the Bunge-Wand-Weber (BWW) representation theory as a basis for such an analysis.
