Temporal aspects in business processes - an application to E-government
This paper analyses which temporal aspects need to be recognised in business process modelling. The periodicity and the temporal reference of information objects are discussed in detail.

Furthermore, the findings are implemented into the OMG's Unified Modelling standard to show the significance of the results for the current modelling practice. Because of the systematic analysis our findings can be transferred to other modelling languages and other problem domains.
