Business Process Models as a Showcase for Syntax-Based Assistance in Diagram Editor

Recently, a generic approach for syntax-based user assistance in diagram editors has been proposed that requires the syntax of the visual language to be defined by a graph grammar. The present paper describes how this approach can be applied to the language of Business Process Models (BPMs), which is widely used now-a-days. The resulting BPM editor provides the following assistance features: combination or completion of BPM fragments, generation of BPM examples, and an extensive set of correctness-preserving editing operations for BPMs, and auto-link, i.e., the automatic connection of activities by sequence flow.
