Multidimensional Data Modeling for Business Process Analysis
The emerging area of business process intelligence attempts to enhance the analytical capabilities of business process management systems by employing data warehousing and mining technologies. This paper presents an approach to re-engineering the business process modeling in conformity with the multidimensional data model. Since the business process and the multidimensional model are driven by rather different objectives and assumptions, there is no straightforward solution to converging these models. The authors' case study is concerned with Surgical Process Modeling which is a new and promising sub-domain of business process modeling.
