The contemporary business operations are encountering tremendous challenges. The management of the globalization, such as the supply chain management, makes the enterprise to consider making alliances, establishing the partner relationships and forming the virtual enterprise. At this time, when an enterprise wants to sustain a competitive advantage, a business process with adaptation and facilitation to support the operations of the organization is necessary. Therefore, a good modeling in business process can get value-added to the enterprise.
There are a lot of techniques for business process modeling. Each technique of modeling has its advantages and disadvantages. This paper presents a technique of architecture-oriented process modeling, which is an integrated model with structure and process in one unity. In order to show the excellent performances of the architecture-oriented process model, a comparison was made between the architecture-oriented process model and those traditional process models. It is shown that the architecture-oriented process model has the merits of the capability to satisfy not only the functional, behavioral, organizational, and informational perspectives of modeling an enterprise, but also the concurrency and executable ability. Finally, two cases are presented to explain the abilities of this model.
The architecture-oriented modeling is thriving, the author believes that the continuing discussions and investigations will have a great beneficiary to the total solution of the problems of the varied environments of the business operations and thereof.
