Abstract
Business processes are increasingly recognized as important corporate assets that need to be managed throughout their lifecycle. Specially, interests in supply chain management and virtual enterprises require a new paradigm that provides lifecycle support for business processes. Integrated Process Management (IPM) has been proposed as a business process management paradigm that aims at integrating processes using eXtensible Markup Language (XML) and supporting design, analysis, automation, and management of business process knowledge. This paper introduces IPM-PDL, an XML-based process definition language for IPM. Process definitions and related data are integrated using XML which will be translated to a colored Petri Net. Various analysis and simulation can be performed to check the validity of a new process and estimate its performance. The paper also introduces ProcessWare, a prototype system for IPM-process definition language (PDL), along with an extended example which will demonstrate how IPM can effectively manage business processes throughout their lifecycle ranging from process modeling to process knowledge management.
