Abstract

The goal of the paper is to define naming patterns for BPMN2events in order to process them differently to obtain the most complete and semantically correct SBVR business vocabularyand business rules as possible. The paper presents BPMN2 events and their representation in SBVR as a separate part of BPMN2 business process models transformation to SBVR business vocabulary and rules. As different BPMN2 events present different process behavior, they should be analyzed and processed separately to have full and comprehensive set of SBVR businessvocabulary and business rules as they present terms, restrictions and business logic in organizations. Running example ispresented for a better understanding. Overall approach recently has become available in UML CASE tool MagicDraw after implementing SBVR plugin based on UML profile for SBVR. The approach was implemented using QVT transformation language.
