Abstract

Many Spatial Information Production (SIP) Organizations around the world are under pressure to assess their capabilities from the business perspective. Several Business Process Reengineering (BPR) projects are initiated to facilitate their adaptation to changing requirements in the global information market, with a focus on the effective use of Information Technology. Several methodologies and commercial modelling tools are now available to help the process engineer analyze the behavior of real systems and its business processes. Describing the process by means of models is essential to predict the consequences of new design options. This paper presents steps for the design of a methodology for appropiate use of an architectural modelling technique which describes processes as sets of activities and interactions with conditions of occurrence at any moment in time. The modelling technique is used as a base for performance study and reengineering of spatial information production processes, as demonstrated in two research projects.
