Abstract:In order to stay competitive, companies are always searching for opportunities to improve their business processes. Techniques regarding business process improvement have developed over time, going from Business Process (Re-)Engineering to Business Process Management (BPM). Current business processes usually involve supporting systems in the form of software, for which requirements are usually created from those models. These BPM models are created by the business side of companies, usually not aimed at software development. Research on Model Driven Engineering (MDE) and Model Driven Architecture (MDA) shows that high level (business) models can be transformed into lower level models, either by hand or automatic. The transition from model to model makes sure that there is always proper communication between the business and the software “worlds”, as well as eliminating shelf-ware models that are forgotten after their creation. Since both sides understand the things they are modelling, less misunderstandings can occur, which leads to reduction of costs and development time to support an agile way of business process development. This thesis focuses on a specific mapping of a BPM modelling language (BiZZdesigner) to an executable MDE modelling language (Mendix)
