Business Process-driven Information Requirements Engineering
Becker J, Brelage C, Dreiling A, Ribbert M
Business process models are often used by companies to pursue a business process orientation. Originally, these models were used for organizational design purposes. However, because information systems are used to support business processes, business process models can also be used to specify these systems. Nevertheless, the definition of required information during the development of information systems is a highly complex issue which even may lead to project failure if information requirements have been captured inadequately. Our approach will demonstrate how to use business process models to identify required information from a non-technical perspective and derive information spaces that will help the IT-staff to implement supporting data structures.
