 BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Information

Description

The course deals with the workflow technology which represents the basic framework for the development of large scale business management systems.

Starting from abstract descriptions of business processes the course will examine modeling, design, analysis, development and verification methods of the processes.

Afterwards the course will study the management of implemented business processes using the workflow systems technology.

The organisation and architecture of workflow management systems will be examined under the emergence of recent trends in the research fields of e/web-services and web-based information systems.
