Case management appears to offer the required flexibility to cope with the different execution scenarios for a given business process model. This flexibility is handled by a knowledge worker who is on charge of the decision-making during the case execution, and who decides which tasks and in which order should be executed. CMMN (Case Management and Model Notation) is an OMG standard for case management, which tries to make no distinction between design time and runtime. Through the definition of discretionary items during design time, the knowledge worker can ‘adjust’ the case for his needs at runtime. The workflow patterns initiative developed a collection of well-known, widely applied workflow best practices from different perspectives (control flow, data, resource, and exception handling). As a case management language, CMMN should provide support to the representation of some of those workflow patterns, to be aligned with best-practices that form the book-of-knowledge of the prescriptive business process modeling languages. In this work, we examine the expressiveness of CMMN as a BPM language through a workflow pattern-based analysis. Particularly, we want to identify: i) patterns that CMMN can handle; ii) patterns CMMN does not handle as described, but that are almost achieved; iii) patterns that could be handled by extensions proposed by CMMN engines; and iv) patterns that cannot be handled by CMMN.


Renata Carvalho is post-doctoral researcher at the LATECE laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Hafedh Mili. She received  her PhD in Computer Science in 2015 from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil. She also received her master and a bachelor degree in Computer Engineering in 2010 and 2007 respectively, from University of Pernambuco, Brazil. Her research interests are mainly (but not limited to): flexible business processes, case management, formal methods. She  has published and presented more than 10 research works in different venues related to the aforementioned research topics.
