Abstract

Each enterprise needs to have a clear vision of its business processes in order to increase the quality of its products/services. To fulfil this need, many enterprises rely on an Information System (IS). Most of the previous systems were previously framed by applying business process model. In addition, the current trend expresses a growing demand of reusing data from older information systems, which is very beneficial for the implementation of semantic knowledge. The transformation of a BPMN model into an ontology leads to reduce cost by reusing older systems. Although many studies are elaborated for transforming BPMN model into ontology, they have not fully proposed the transformation rules. This paper suggests the addition of rules for transforming annotated BPMN models to ontologies by accounting for the semantics of the BPMN model, and providing for all business objects and activities. In addition, the transformations have the merit of generating the OWL2 graphical representation.
