Two-level architecture for rule-based business process management

Ezekiel, Kanana, Vassilev, Vassil and Ouazzane, Karim (2018) Two-level architecture for rule-based business process management. In: The Eighth International Conference on Business Intelligence and Technology BUSTECH 2018, 18-22 February 2018, Barcelona, Spain.


One of the main challenges in Business Process Management (BPM) systems is the need to adapt business rules in real time. A serious obstacle is the lack of adaptable formal models for managing dynamic business rules. This is, due to the inadequacy of the models ability to describe the rule components, meta-rules, relationships and logical dependencies. To overcome this drawback, this paper presents a two-level rule-based approach to control BPM systems. The model accounts for logical representation of rules components and their relationships in Process-based Systems, as well as a method for incremental indexing of the business rules. The incremental indexing mechanism is described as an approach to control process execution and adaptation of business rules in real time based on rules propagation. Therefore this model provides a basis for an efficient and adaptable solution for managing business rules changes.
