Architecture blueprint for a business process simulation engine

Stefan Krumnow , Matthias Weidlich and Rüdiger Molle

Abstract


Simulation of business process models allows for drawing conclusions on the performance and costs of business processes before they are implemented or changed. Requirements for a business process simulation engine are specific to a concrete use case and a dedicated business domain. In this paper, we focus on the simulation of clinical pathways in a hospital. We elaborate on the requirements imposed by this use case in detail and propose an architecture blueprint for a simulation engine. It is based on annotated BPMN process models and uses timed and colored Petri nets as the underlying formalism.
