Although business process performance measurement is an important topic in research and industry, current conceptual Business Process Modelling Languages (BPMLs) do not mirror these requirements by providing explicit modelling means for process goals and their measures. The UML 2 Activity Diagram is designed for modelling business processes, but does not yet include any concepts for modelling process goals and their measures. The authors extend the UML 2 Activity Diagram with process goals and performance measures to make them conceptually visible. Additionally, they provide a mapping to BPEL to make the measures available for execution and monitoring. This profile and its mapping are tested with an example business process.
