Transformation of yEPC business process models to YAWL

Transformation of yEPC business process models to YAWL
Model transformations are frequently applied in business process modeling to bridge between languages on a different abstraction and formality. In this paper, we define a transformation between yEPCs which is an extension to the popular Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) and YAWL, a formal workflow language that is able to capture all of the 20 workflow patterns reported in [1]. We illustrate the transformation challenges and present a suitable transformation algorithm. The benefit of the transformation is threefold. First, it clarifies the semantics of yEPCs via a mapping to YAWL. Second, the deployment of yEPC business process models as workflows is simplified. Thirdly, yEPC models can be analyzed with YAWL verification tools.
