Model Collections

This page shares various collections of process models.

BPMN Models of the textbook “Fundaments of Business Process Management”:

EPC Models of the ERP Reference Model:

This model collection is described in the book Metrics For Process Models. The EPC models are stored as EPML, an XML format for EPC process models.

Models of the BPM Academic Initiative:

This model collection originates from the BPM Academic Initiative (BPMAI). In 2012, the initial members of this initiative were the following institutions represented by the corresponding professors: Mathias Weske (HPI, University of Potsdam), Marlon Dumas (University of Tartu), Marcello La Rosa (University of Melbourne), Jan Mendling (WU Vienna), Hajo A. Reijers (Utrecht University), Michael Rosemann (Queensland University of Technology, Australia), Jan Recker (University of Cologne, Germany), Wil van der Aalst (RWTH Aachen, Germany), Michael zur Mühlen (Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ) and Frank Leymann (University of Stuttgart), respectively, complemented by Dr. Gero Decker (Signavio GmbH, Berlin). The vendor Signavio provides a free workspace to the members of the BPM Academic Initiative and the models being created are made available for reseach purposes on the Creative Commons licence.

The BPM Academic Initiative collection comprises tens of thousands of models, of various process modeling languages, and size. Models of the collection are available in several revisions, which opens a new perspective in researching the way people model.
The BPMAI collection is shared in a JSON format. Tools have been developed at HPI, University of Potsdam for efficiently processing these files. See the PromniCat project. Note that this project is no longer further developed, so you have to work with the information available there. Various analysis techniques can be applied for these models using the jBPT library or Apromore.
