DYONIPOS - DYnamic ONtology based Integrated Process OptimiSation
The DYONIPOS mission is to develop
context sensitive, intelligent, and agile semantic technologies which
provide the basis for significant productivity improvement in knowledge
intensive organizations. Agile semantic technologies will enable the
uniform handling of structured as well as unstructured business process
parts and data, supporting two crucial roles: Support for process
executers in the efficient, standardized but still flexible execution of
business processes and support for process engineers in the definition of
such standardized processes based on existing work practice.
The process-oriented goal of DYONIPOS is to resolve the dilemma of flexibility for knowledge workers versus organizational needs for standardization and control by supporting the grass roots development and evolution of workflows from ad hoc processes without relinquishing the needed organizational control.
Ad hoc processes provide the link between the business process executer and the business process engineer. They consist of defined in- and outputs, but leave the way to accomplish the defined outputs up to the knowledge worker and her specific context.
The tasks for process engineers will be supported in semantic analysis and visualisation methods for ad hoc process analysis and the automatic optimization of ad hoc processes based on new optimization algorithms. DYONIPOS will develop new technology suitable to cope with dynamic and agile organizational environments while still allowing a high level of standardisation and control.
