Abstract

We present a new approach of parameterized generation of process documentation combining concepts of business process modeling with proven methods of model-based test management. Starting from a graphical description of the complete business process, including all process variants, we are able to automatically generate the detailed documentation of specific process variants, as well as project- and role-specific operating procedures. For the automated generation, established tools from model-based testing will be enhanced further to better support this new application domain.
