Analysis of Business Process and Capability Hypergraphs

Business process modelling is receiving renewed attention as businesses restructure their business partnerships, sourcing agreements, and production arrangements. However, although processes may be connected to the strategic elements of a business, the process graphs are not themselves business models. When a business is restructured, either in terms of organization or in terms of strategic direction, process graphs may be completely changed. We discuss in this paper the linking of process and capability models with hypergraphs, facilitating richer modelling and analysis of the business.
