Contribution to a methodology for process automation by resource characterization.
To successfully improve their business information systems and process automation, companies call on computer engineering and services societies (IT companies) to better help their clients to identify process automation barriers and other opportunities to overcome productivity gaps. IT companies require a tool merging process modeling and process simulation simultaneously. In order to reach the goal set by the client, the modeling simulation tool methodology should be understandable by all stakeholders, from the business analyst to the IT consultant, in order to increase communication and facilitate the analysis. For this, a tool based on an MDE approach is required. This tool has the ability to separate the operational needs from the technical needs, whilst still being able to highlight any links between the two. In addition, it couples the methodology with a modeling language allowing to model different levels of precision: capturing first high-level activities and then concentrating down to lower levels. Finally, the same modeling language includes the representation of non-functional requirements with simulation means to assess them. For that purpose, this thesis proposes an MDE analysis methodology with a tool merging modeling and simulation at the same phase, using a resource-perspective approach. Our work is based on Model Driven System Engineering Architecture (MDSEA) and eBPMN language.
