|Abstract:||Model-Driven Engineering holds the promise of transforming
business models into code automatically. This requires the concept of
model transformation. In this paper, we assess the feasibility of model
transformations from Event-driven Process Chain models to Business
Process Execution Language specifications. To this purpose, we use a
framework based on ontological analysis and workflow patterns in order
to predict the possibilities/limitations of such a model transformation.
The framework is validated by evaluating the transformation of several
models, including a real-life case.
The framework indicates several limitations for transformation. Eleven
guidelines and an approach to apply them provide methodological support
to improve the feasibility of model transformation from EPC to
