Adopts Case Management Model and Notation 1.0 Beta
Will be made available for free public download
Needham, MA- 05-06-2013-The Object
Management Group (OMG®) is pleased to announce that its
Board of Directors has voted to adopt the Case Management
Model and Notation (CMMN) 1.0 Beta specification. The
standard will go through the OMG finalization process in the
coming months. In the meantime, it will be made available
for download on OMG's homepage for the public's usage and
The standard defines a common meta-model and notation for
modeling and graphically expressing a case, as well as an
interchange format for exchanging case models among
different tools. The standard is intended to capture the
common elements that case management products use, while
also taking into account current research contributions on
case management. It will be to case management products what
the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) specification
is to business process management products.
"The Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN)
specification expands the boundaries of what can be
accomplished with BPMN by incorporating knowledge worker
driven adaptive work. Now customers can address a much
broader spectrum of processes using a combination of BPMN
and CMMN," said Ralf Mueller, Architect at Oracle and
co-chair of the CMMN Finalization Task Force (with the other
co-chair being from Cordy's). "We are pleased to be
working with OMG and other members to drive CMMN as it
aligns with our strategy of supporting the complete spectrum
of processes in a standards-compliant fashion."
