In order to develop the process-oriented software, we put forward hierarchical colored Petri net (HCPN) to model business process. This approach consists of hierarchical decomposition graph, detailed process graph. Furthermore, the concept of business process components (BPCs) is proposed to facility the business process modeling. The software components, which are constructs of the information system, can be derived by means of the mapping from the relevant business process components. The development of business process-oriented application will be more convenient and rapid based on component library. Such an application becomes more flexible to the changing environment.
