Simulating Business Processes – A Review of Tools and Techniques

Benny Mathew and Rajesh Mansharamani

Abstract—There is a great need for simulation of dynamic/temporal aspects of business processes. The current standard for modeling business processes is BPMN and in this review, the various techniques and tools that use BPMN for simulation are studied. The review also points to shortcomings in BPMN support for simulation and in the BPM tools claim to support simulation of business processes. We also present a case for general purpose DES tools to widen their scope and create components/plugins to convert BPMN output to DES input.

Index Terms—BPM, BPMN; BPD; BPC; simulation; business process; discrete event; operations research; DES; DEVS.
