Modelling Languages, Distributed Environments, Evalua tion, Quality Metrics


The paper presents a framework for evaluating how well process modelling languages are suited for representing processes in distributed environments. The framework fo cuses on five main areas: Distribution, autonomy, het erogeneity, collaboration, and flexibility/evolution. The framework defines 21 quality metrics in the five main areas used to assess the ability to model processes in distributed environments. This paper also presents an evaluation of the four process modelling languages Oz, CAGIS, InConcert, and SPEM using the framework. The evaluation illustrates how the framework can be used and what results are typi cally found.
