Abstract [en]

This paper evaluates the suitability of the workflow modeling tools through process-based materialworkflow perspective. A case example in inbound logistics system of “Resource Reception” workflow at thehighest domain abstract level is examined with four nominated workflow modeling standards of Data FlowDiagram (DFD), Event-based Process Control (EPC), Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) andUnified Modeling Language (UML) Activity Diagrams (AD). Focusing on the physical object diagramingsyntax and semantics, the essential factors of the flows, consumption pattern and states for physical objectsas well as readability, easiness and comprehensiveness of the modeling tools were discussed throughout themodeling development. The models and comparative evaluation results clearly demonstrates the superiorityand advantages of using UML Ads at the workflow modeling providing an extensive view of the whole systemfunctionalities and behavior fulfilling the necessity of capturing any undepicted entity that might hold the keyof improvement in Business Process Management (BPM).
