Example text

In order to represent business processes through DTMCs or MDPs, a formal semantics must be determined to be able to handle stochastic information. Otherwise automating the translation process of a business process to a stochastic model will be quite hard or even impossible. Since the two case studies were modeled manually, any process related variable could be considered as randomly distributed. However, future studies focused on the automation of the modeling process should define probability templates or some technique to enable process designers to include certain aspects of randomness in processes following predefined parameters.

The paper is structured as follows. Next section presents the overview of the related work concerning the issue of process autocompletion. Then a description of the scenario follows. Next, we present the completion strategies and the mechanism overview. The article concludes with an overview of the architecture of the solution and a brief summary. 2 Related Work Our approach is related to the work of [4], which also concerns semantic business process modelling.
