Friday, Sep 22, 12:30h, in Pav. K16, we have a cluster meeting. Sander Peters presents his ongoing, recent research on resource allocation in business processes management.
Abstract: In the field of business process management increasingly complex processes are developed. Planning of these processes is possible with modern modeling techniques as BPMN. But since these processes are increasingly complex the resource allocation for these processes also becomes more and more complex. In order to determine the resource allocation data-driven methods are needed to provide accurate data on resource requirements for a process. Resource requirements can be determined using simulation of these processes provided. Currently there are no adequate simulation engines out there for BPMN processes, but also BPMN does not support a complete resource perspective. Therefore research is necessary to improve the ability to provide resource requirements in order to make feasible resource allocations.
