Querying Process Models Repositories by Aggregated Graph Search
Business process modeling is essential in any process improvement project. Yet, it is a time consuming and an error-prone step. With a rapidly increasing number of process models developed by different process designers, it becomes crucial for business process designers to reuse knowledge existing in model repositories, e.g., to find solutions for a recurring situation. Process model querying provides powerful means to address this situation. However, current approaches fail if no single process model satisfies all constraints of a query.
