Abstract:


In an agile and dynamic market, companies face the challenge to continually adapt their business processes. Technologies such as RFID allow companies to automatically monitor their business processes. This paper introduces RFID based Business Process Analysis (RBPA). With the usage of RFID transponders and readers, different types of data about existing business processes is acquired and used as input for a detailed process analysis and simulation as well as for the automatic generation of process models. The approach supports process managers in executing detailed business process analysis with less effort and more adequate parameters compared to existing approaches.
