Integrated Process Management (IPM)

Business Process Reengineering (BPR) has had a tremendous industrial and academic impact by emphasizing the notion of process. It has not provided, however, rigorous principles for validation and optimization of redesigned processes by focusing on reduction of process cycle times and workers. Current information technologies such as groupware and workflow management have focused on automation of processes and sharing of process-related information. Increased interests in virtual enterprises in the global Internet business environment require a new paradigm that encompasses process design/redesign and integration, process validation and optimization, process automation and control, process data exchange among organizations, and management of business process knowledge.

Knowledge Process Integration

Integrated Process Management aims to integrate processes using XML (eXtensible Markup Language) and support design, analysis, automation, and management of business processes knowledge. Process definitions and data related to them are integrated using XML which will be translated to a colored Petri net.

Further, process knowledge can be created and managed by collecting all the data related to process definitions and the process execution results.
