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.
