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.
