2. BPMN Profile for Operational Requirements
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 6/2/2014
Authors: Conrad E Bock, Raphael R. Barbau, Anantha Narayanan Narayanan
Abstract: An important aspect of systems and products is how they interact with their environment, including how they are operated. Behaviors external to systems usually involve people not trained in the details of how systems are designed and built, but who ...
