One of the key objectives of Business Process Modelling is to better understand and visualize business processes in order to improve and/or enact them in some IT infrastructure. This modelling perspective becomes more complicated and challenging with the expansion of businesses across geographical boundaries. Further, this necessitates finding technological solutions to execute agile business processes. And, in an effort to enact business process models using distributed technologies, the authors present a novel framework for translating business processes modeled using Role Activity Diagramming into generic meta-representation with the objective to access, customize and integrate the modelling constructs with functional and non-functional processing artefacts.
