Title: Advanced Simulation of Resources Constructs in Business Process Models
Abstract: Analytical prediction of the performance of increasingly complex process models is a problem in business process engineering practice. Therefore, simulation is often used as a tool to assess the performance of these processes. However, current business process simulation engines do not support the use of advanced resource constructs. Using only basic resource constructs leads to performance metrics which deviate significantly from the real process performance. Therefore, a clear need arises for a new simulation engine which incorporates these advanced resource constructs. Addressing this need we present such a simulation engine and underlying conceptual model in this paper. The model and engine are evaluated in a simulation experiment that highlights utilization rates under different conditions. This experiment shows that the advanced resource constructs outperform the basic resource constructs in predicting the performance of real world processes. This prototype is the first step into accurate simulation of complex real world processes.

Title: Business process model visualisation and understandability in 3D virtual environments 
In this BPM Cluster meeting, we will participate in an experiment about business process model visualisation.  We will have a chance to experiment with process models visualised in 3D virtual environment.

In the last 15-20 mins of the meeting, Banu Aysolmaz (Maastricht University, School of Business and Economics, Asst. Prof. of Information Management) will be with us to talk about the main research objective and early findings from their experiments.

Title: Manufacturing operations as a set of business process patterns, Vol.2
Abstract: In July Jonnro questioned the suitability of business process modelling to represent manufacturing operations. The objective was to translate manufacturing operations into a set of business process patterns. This next presentation will focus on the results of that exercise. Jonnro will show the process patterns (in BPMN2.02) and how they are combined to create manufacturing operations processes. To evaluate the suitability, the patterns are also used to model the processes of three factories. Finally, Jonnro will discuss four potential extensions to BPMN and how it will enhance the suitability for manufacturing operations.

Title: BPM Issues and Cognitive Biases: Towards a Solution Space for BPM Issues based on Debiasing Techniques 
Abstract: In our previous work, we investigated how cognitive biases may lead to issues in the design phases of the business process management (BPM) lifecycle, such as the development of suboptimal process architectures and incomplete process models, the identification of irrelevant bottlenecks and weaknesses in a process, and the selection and implementation of confirmatory redesigns. In this talk, we will discuss about our recent work towards solving these issues through the use of debiasing techniques. Such techniques can be used to reduce or avoid the cognitive biases that potentially lead to BPM issues.

Title: Manufacturing operations as a set of business process patterns
Abstract: Demand for mass customised products is reinforcing the need for a more dynamic manufacturing enterprise. Smart robotics provide more versatility and responsiveness on the factory floor, but the enterprise must become more dynamic as a whole. Business process management is widely adopted for manufacturing support functions, but it is strikingly absent from the core competences. Extending BPM to the manufacturing operations can improve end-to-end integration, enhancing responsiveness of the entire enterprise. However, it is unclear whether manufacturing operations can be managed as business processes. The uncertainty is addressed by translating a taxonomy of manufacturing operations into business process patterns. These patterns are then used to model the processes of three factories to determine whether the resulting models deliver the desired execution behaviour. The results support the use of BPM in manufacturing operations, with three potential notation extensions.
