Within the realm of computer science exists the field of business process models. While the "standard" is an activity-centric process model, another paradigm was defined in the last years: data-centric process model. PHILharmonic Flows is a business process management systems (BPMS), which supports this relative new data-centric paradigm. The downside of this BPMS is the absence of a monitoring feature to either supervise the users and their corresponding processes or to visualize the flow of the processes. With the visualization, it is possible to identify pending steps of a process and hence is a part of process monitoring. Central elements of this thesis are the different approaches of progress calculation relating to the process model of PHILharmonic Flows. However, the results of the elucidation of progress calculation can also be applied to other data-centric approaches and even to other paradigms. In the later part of this thesis, the developed prototype is explained, which uses the different progress calculation approaches. Additionally, the design of the user interface and the data processing is elucidated.
