Abstract: Businesses today rarely operate in isolation but must collaborate with others in a coordinated fashion. To address collaboration concerns, business analysts need to design business processes. Business process designs have a direct impact on the required software systems and the corresponding architectural design. Conversely, the architectural design imposes constraints on the business process designs. Unfortunately, business processes and software architectures are often designed separately leading to a misalignment between the two. To bridge this gap we propose the architecture collaboration viewpoint to be used by teams of business analysts and software architects when addressing business collaboration concerns. The collaboration viewpoint uses elements from business process and architecture viewpoints to provide new modeling artifacts for alignment. The design artefacts are mapping tables and workflow pattern diagrams that are used to identify misalignments and redesign the busines s processes. The viewpoint facilitates the communication between business analysts and architects. We illustrate the collaboration viewpoint for a food supply chain transparency system from a real industrial case study. (More)
