Reference process models are templates for common processes run by many corporations. However, the individual needs among organizations on the execution of these processes usually vary. A process model can address these variations through control-flow choices. Thus, it can integrate the different process variants into one model. Through configuration parameters, a configurable reference models enables corporations to derive their individual process variant from such an integrated model. While this simplifies the adaptation process for the reference model user, the construction of a configurable model integrating several process variants is far more complex than the creation of a traditional reference model depicting a single best-practice variant.
