Wiki meets Process Modeling Tool - Conceptual Design and Implementation of an Interface

Wiki software such as MediaWiki or TWiki are collaboration tools that offer broad functionality to access, edit and discuss structured information in a shared environment. These are features, which are also sought by process modeling tools. The idea of this thesis is to integrate these domains of process modeling and collaboration tools.

When conceptualizing such an integration, there are several design questions to be considered:

  • Where should the data be stored? Which system is master over the data?
  • How deep should the integration go? One-way or two-way integration between the systems?
  • How can process model structures be visualized in a Wiki system?

In the context of the thesis, the student shall therefore develop a concept (and implementation) for an integration between a Wiki system and a process modeling tool.
