Abstract

This paper presents an approach that builds upon social computing principles to make business processes; "socialize". First the approach identifies the main components of a business process that are task, person, and; machine. A task is a work unit that forms with other tasks a business process and that a person and/ormachine; execute. Afterwards the approach enriches a business process with details captured from the (execution; and social) relations that connect tasks together, persons together, and machines together. While execution; relations are widely reported in the literature, there is a growing interest in studying the role of social; relations in business processes. The approach uses social relations to build configuration network of tasks,; social network of persons, and support network ofmachines. These networks capture the ongoing interactions; that arise when business processes are executed. A system illustrating how these networks are developed is; also demonstrated in the paper.
