Transforming SPEM 2.0-compatible Process Models into Models Checkable for Compliance

Conference/Workshop Paper

Manual compliance with process-based standards is timeconsuming and prone-to-error. No ready-to-use solution is currently available for increasing eciency and con dence. In our previous work, we have presented our automated compliance checking vision to support the process engineers work. This vision includes the creation of a process model, given by using a SPEM 2.0 (Systems & Software Process Engineering Metamodel)-reference implementation, to be checked by Regorous, a compliance checker used in the business context. In this paper, we move a step further for the concretization of our vision by de ning the transformation, necessary to automatically generate the models required by Regorous. Then, we apply our transformation to a small portion of the design phase recommended in the rail sector. Finally, we discuss our ndings, and present conclusions and future work.
