Abstract

Business processes are normally managed by designing, operating and analysing corresponding process models. While delivering these process models, an understanding gap arises depending on the degree of different users’ familiarity with modeling languages, which may slow down or even stop the normal functioning of processes. Therefore, a method for automatically generating texts from process models was proposed. However, the current method just involves ordinary model patterns so that the coverage of the generated text is too low and information loss exists. In this paper, we propose an improved transformation algorithm named Goun to tackle this problem of describing the process models automatically. The experimental results demonstrate that the Goun algorithm not only supports more elements and complex structures, but also remarkably improves the coverage of generated text.
