The increasing adoption of process-aware information systems (PAISs) has resulted in large process model collections. To support business and IT users having different perspectives on processes, a PAIS should provide personalized views on process models. Especially, changing process models is frequent use case due to evolving processes or unplanned situations. This demonstration presents the proView framework for changing large process models through updating process views, while ensuring up-to-dateness and consistency of all related process views. More precisely, update operations can be applied to a process view and are correctly propagated to the underlying process model. Further, all views related to this process model are then correctly migrated to its new version. Overall, the proView framework enables users to evolve process models over time based on appropriate model abstractions.
