The Research Group Business Process Management deals with methods and technologies for automation and IT support for business processes. The main focus of the work is the development of systems to support process participants in knowledge-intensive processes, as well as the evaluation and enhancement of the performance of process engines for highly scalable dark processing.


Currently, the use of BPM technologies for the development of applications to support (knowledge-intensive) processes is being investigated.

Foundation of the open-source project Educama - Development of a showcase with the OMG standards BPMN, CMMN and DMN as a cloud-native application with the following goals:

  • Improve education and training in business process management.
  • Investigating the suitability of agile methods in the development of process applications.
  • Evaluation of current software technologies, architectures, cloud platforms and deployment scenarios for process applications.

Presentation and visualization of BPM showcases:

  • Didactic preparation of the developed showcases for different stakeholders.
  • Establishment of a suitable laboratory infrastructure for the presentation and development of showcases.

The lecture courses offered by the research group include lectures on business process management (BPM), which aim to enable students to develop business process models that can be executed in current BPM systems. The Reutlinger BPM-Laboratory is used in the showcases as part of the teaching and project work can be carried out. Further courses expand the technological competence of the students in the field of professional software development with enterprise Java technologies.
