Business Process Management has gained importance within organizations due to the need to streamline their operations. Nevertheless, despite the existence of process modeling standards such as BPMN, now-a-days it is difficult to specify complex temporal constraints and relationships among tasks of a given process, which prevents the specification and subsequent automation of processes where these restrictions are relevant. To solve the exposed difficulty, the authors have resorted to the project planning and management field, developing a BPMN equivalency of all temporal constraints and relationships that can be specified in a standard project planning tool: Microsoft project.
