Business process models represent detailed information regarding the documentation, optimization, and automation of organizational processes. With an increasing level of detail, such models become rapidly complex, thus hindering their correct comprehension (i.e., both, the efficiency and accuracy of understanding decrease). Furthermore, once a process model is created, the view on it and the respective level of detail remains rigid for all stakeholders. However, a process model may contain information, which is less relevant for certain stakeholders (e.g., domain experts). Consequently, the comprehension of process models becomes more difficult, as all information in a model needs to be read. Existing modeling systems do not offer the functionality to dynamically change the level of detail of a process model according to the stakeholders’ preferences. To address this issue, the work at hand presents the Dynamic Visualization of Process Models (DyVProMo), a lightweight web-based tool that enables the dynamic visualization of information in process models expressed in terms of the Business Process Model and Notation 2.0.
