The methodology assumes four distinct phases and several abstraction levels and is applicable both when developing systems from scratch or in re-engineering contexts.

By tailoring process reference models and by considering the characteristics of a specific organization, a proper set of business processes is derived for that organization. Then, we can obtain a suitable information system and implement its automatable parts in a software solution that can run on top of open source software frameworks. We also present four new supporting concepts to the methodology, and a summar...
