Maintaining consistency between business process diagrams and textual documentation using the EPSILON Model Management Platform
This study focuses on the demonstration how a generic model transformation tool can be used to manage inconsistencies between business process diagrams and textual documentation. It is tried to prove that a generic model transformation tool is more suitable for maintaining consistency in comparison to the already existing tools. Therefore, first literature is used to provide a framework for managing inconsistencies. The state-of-the-art in commercialized tools that can contribute in
consistency management is explored and rated against the provided framework. In a final stage a prototype of an inconsistency management tool, build with a generic model transformation tool, is used and expanded to show the improvements in inconsistency management based on the framework and compared to the available commercialized tools.
