To support business process understanding and reengineering, techniques and tools for process modeling and analysis are required. The paper presents the ARTEMIS tool environment for business process modeling and analysis. Process analysis is performed according to an organizational structure perspective and an operational structure perspective, to capture the degree of autonomy/dependency of organization units in terms of coupling, and the inter-process semantic correspondences, in terms of data and operation similarity, respectively. Processes are modeled as workflows and techniques developed for workflow analysis are presented in the context of a pilot application involving the Italian Ministry of Justice.
