Abstract

This study is attempting to suggest a way to translate strategic objectives into operational business goals. The main objective is more precisely to discuss the mappings that might be done between intention-oriented language and business process modeling language in order to align the intentional level with the operational level. In our view, such an alignment between these levels can help the software designers in transforming easily the business requirements into business process descriptions. The idea is to propose an approach of a mapping bridging the gap between a model of requirement and a model of business. This approach is illustrated using MAP as an intention-oriented language mainly intended to describe business requirements in intentional level. The first application of this language concerns the field of Information System Engineering in order to model process on a flexible way and Business Process Modeling Language (BPMN) as a graph-oriented modeling notation targeted to model business goals in operational level. Based on these mappings, an example is presented that is illustrating the translation from the MAP process model element to BPMN.
