International Journal of Internet and Enterprise Management (IJIEM), Vol. 3, No. 2, 2005

Abstract: The process integration puts business modelling and application system design together to optimise the business process management. In this paper, a new process integration scheme based on multiple workflow domains through process decomposition and multiple domain management is proposed for intra-organisation oriented process management. By decomposing a long-life business process into several shorter processes, the coupling relationship inside the process can be reduced, and therefore management flexibility is accordingly enhanced. Because each workflow domain is an autonomous entity, management strategies or policies can be specifically proposed and applied to different domains rather than the whole organisation, for the improvement of business efficiency, cost and quality.
