Abstract

In this paper a Web-based tool component for modeling and optimisation of business processes is presented. A core idea of our approach is that business process descriptions are stored in a standardised XML-based format, which can be automatically transformed into a Petri Net format. Petri Nets are used because they allow a formal analysis, evaluation, and optimisation of business processes. Our tool consists of a collection of collaborating software components, which can be flexibly distributed and accessed over the internet. The standardised XML based description format for business processes allows to easily collaborate with business process related tools of this area.
