Abstract: Decisions are often not adequately modeled. They are hardcoded in process models or other representations, but not modeled in a systematic way. Because of this hardcoding or inclusion in other models, organizations often lack the necessary flexibility, maintainability and traceability in their business operations. We propose to first model the structure of the decision. Next, starting from this declarative model, a set of processes are built or derived, which are ultimately evaluated against a set of business criteria. This approach aims to develop a roadmap for the modeling of business processes based on decisions structures, and examines the challenges that arise when such decision structures are eventually transformed into more optimal execution-system geared business processes.
