This paper proposes a visualization technique to support the modeling and management of large business process specifications. The technique uses a set of criteria to produce views of the specification that exclude less relevant features. The proposed approach consists of three steps: assessing the relevance of nodes, reducing the specification, and presenting the results. Algorithms and methods are presented for these steps along with examples. There are multiple graphical business process modeling techniques such as EPC (Event-driven Process Chain) and YAWL (Yet Another Workflow Language). Graphical business process modeling languages are elegant solutions because the user can visually interpret the process. However, as the process grows in size the graph becomes difficult to deal with.
