Abstract

Configurable process models enable reusing existing process models by combining them, significantly reducing their modelling and maintenance costs. This paper proposes a systematic approach to incorporate reconfigurability in a set of validated business process models by the Brazilian Federal Govern-ment. Inspired by the Software Product Lines paradigm, our idea is to create fam-ilies of business processes, where feature models are used to represent the com-monalities and variabilities of each family. These feature models are built by identifying both patterns of processes in the source business process models and the variation points between those models.
