As in the foundation and principles for complex process science and engineering, a major problem is the lack of formal specification language to treat the dynamics of modeling complex processes with its simulations, emulations and enactments. This paper defines a formal specification language which allows integrating the complex thinking with software engineering principles for guiding the characterization of minimum requirements to design technology within living complex processes. There is a lack of research in the literature referring to the model process structural complexity. Such a model complex process can be directed toward acquiring good maintainability attributes according to the principles of complex process science and engineering. In this work a Value Based Business Process Management Network Model (VBPMN) is developed to acquire directly from the target complex process codes the knowledge hidden among and within composite and elementary complex processes.

The foundation for network process evolution research is the modeling of network structure and behavior complexity. With such a model, network systems can be directed toward acquiring good maintainability attributes according to the principles of engineering. In this paper, a Process Management Network (PMN) model is developed to acquire directly from the target process codes the knowledge hidden among and within components of network systems. With the knowledge acquired by the PMN model, network structure and behavior complexity measures in terms of partitioning, restructuring and rewriting criteria are developed; a systematic process re-modularization schema is derived, and algorithms for scheduling network changes are presented. These criteria and mechanisms are used to guide the network evolution. Source
