Business Process Management in Sequential Manufacturing and its Realization of YAWL-Based
Starting with features of production in Sequential Manufacturing industries, this paper integrated the four stages -modeling, execution, management, and optimization- of Business Process Management (BPM) into related links of production in Sequential Manufacturing. Therefore, a BPM model orienting to Sequential Manufacturing (SMBPM) was constructed, and then applied into a Chemical Enterprise. Consequently， remarkable achievements was gained in aspects of business process combing, bottleneck analysis and its optimization, etc. At last, with the support of the YAWL, the automatic execution of BPM in sequential manufacturing was explored.
