Reduction Techniques for Efficient Behavioral Model Checking in Adaptive Case Management

Reduction Techniques for Efficient Behavioral Model Checking in Adaptive Case Management

Abstract

Case models in Adaptive Case Management (ACM) are business process models ranging from unstructured over semi-structured to structured process models. Due to this versatility, both industry and academia show growing interest in this approach. This paper discusses a model checking approach for the behavioral verification of ACM case models. To counteract the high computational demands of model checking techniques, our approach includes state space reduction techniques as a preprocessing step before state-transition system generation. Consequently, the problem size is decreased, which decreases the computational demands needed by the subsequent model checking as well. An evaluation of the approach with a large set of LTL specifications on two real-world case models, which are representative for semi-structured and structured process models and realistic in size, shows an acceptable performance of the proposed approach.
