Business process management and process models are rapidly gaining a worldwide acceptance and recognition. Recently, a new area of research has emerged, the measurement of quality metrics of process models. The authors believe that current modeling tools should provide more analytical capabilities, namely they should provide mechanisms to analyze the coupling, modularity and complexity of process models. In this paper, they show how the notion of coupling, which has been used successfully in software engineering for many years, can be used to evaluate the quality of process models.
