UMM Add-In: A UML Extension for UN/CEFACT’s Modeling Methodology
The tighter coupling of enterprises in regard to information system technology has also changed the way business processes are modeled. Modeling interorganizational business processes is necessary in order to gain a profound and unique representation of the processes involved. However this requires a new methodology especially designed for modeling inter-organizational business processes. The United Nation’s Center for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) took up the challenge and started to develop such a methodology. The research efforts became known as UN/CEFACT’s modeling methodology (UMM) . UMM enables the business modeler to capture the business knowledge independent of the underlying implementation technology such as ebXML or Web Services.
