||/Garg, 1994/ The SMART Approach for Software Process Engineering
Process modeling involves eliciting and capturing informal process descriptions and converting them into formal process models. The concepts used in defining a process model usually depend on the considerations that are important for the organization, and the process model is best developed in conjunction with the people who are participants in, or are affected by, the process. Therefore, at this stage of the process life-cycle, it is important that the concepts used in the language for the process modelling be familiar to the people affected by the process and well understood by them. For this reason, we advocate the use of meta-modelling wherein a process modeler can specify the vocabulary and concepts used for process modelling.
