Step

A Step describes a Change (Transformation) from one Constellation (initial) into one or several mutual exclusive other ones (final). It is the elementary unit of a planned Change.

application review

see Step Class resp. Instance

Constellation

A certain state of the system, which is described as a set of classes (i.a. a constellation) in a certain state, as well as optionally by additional constraints on these classes and their inter relationships.

there is an unreviewed application at hand

see Step Class resp. Instance

Step Class

Describes a set of Steps with similar properties, used in schematic descriptions (e.g. workflow definition)

application review (in general)

Step Class Activity Activity Function Action Case in a template Task in a template

Step Instance

A specific, scheduled or happened Step, used in projects or workflow instances

review of application number 4711

Step Instance exists at runtime, but not modelable Case Task in a Plan

Constellation Class

Describes a set of a Constellations with similar properties, used in schematic descriptions (e.g. workflow definition

there is (any) unreviewed application at hand

Constellation Class implicitly via artefacts implicitly via objects Event Event (via Conditions) implicitly via documents in template Stage in a template; Entities and Rules from a template

Constellation Instance

a specific situation

application number 4711 is unreviewed

Constellation Instance "a token arrives" Incident of an Event (Condition fulfilled) Stage in a Plan; Entities and Rules from a Plan

Change

the purpose of a Step, connects two Constellations (the origin and the goal)

application review

Change not explicitly addressed Purpose of a Stage

Process Schema

Defines valid Step instances of a Process (by specifying Step classes as well as possibly additional restrictions)

class "ApplicaionReview", condition "region : north"

Process Schema Template

Workflow

Purposeful concatenation of Step classes

Sequence of Step Classes "ApplicationEntry", "ApplicationReview", "ApplicationAcceptance"

Workflow Process (actually: Flow Chart) template and all its sub-templates

Process

Set of step instances

instances of class "ApplicaionReview", taking place in region north

Process exists at runtime, but not modelable Plan

Workflow Instance

Purposeful concatenation of Step instances, corresponding to a certain workflow

Sequence of Step Instances "Entry Application #4711", "Review Application #4711", "Acceptance Application #4711"

Workflow Instance exists at runtime, but not modelable Case ("#4711") Plan and all its sub-Plans (from templates)

Project

Purposeful concatenation of Step instances, freely defined

Improvement of Application Review

Project not modelable Case ("Improvement of Application Review") Plan and all its sub-Plans (no templates)

Process Step Schema

Generic term for Workflow and Process Schema, i.e. a Schema, which defines some set of Step instances

Process Step Schema

see Workflow resp. Process Schema

Set of templates

Progression Plan

Generic term for Workflow Instance and Project, i.e. any specific set of Step instances

Progression Plan

see Workflow Instance resp. Project
