Migrating process models between PICTURE and BPMN/EPC
Becker J, Bergener P, Lis L, Pfeiffer D, Räckers M
Model migration between general-purpose modeling languages such as BPMN or EPC and PICTURE, a domain specific modeling language for public administrations, would be helpful for a variety of reasons. Based on the metamodel comparison, an assessment of the feasibility of such a migration is conducted in this paper. While it is generally possible to migrate from domain-specific language to a generic one, migrating in the opposite direction requires a substantial amount of semantic analysis, which can be hardly automated and involves human input.
