Abstract

This paper describes a framework that is intended to provide an infrastructure for the delivery of support for business processes-including design processes, software development processes and procurement processes. This framework has to be capable of supporting quasi-independent process model instance evolution, and to provide seamless support in this environment for the non-expert Process Manager to exploit this capability.
