The existing process printer of the Semantic Result Formats Extension can also export the data of the graph into a behaviour model for the Horus Business Modeler.

Installation[edit]

If you have installed the Process Printer no further steps are needed.


Instructions on how to install Horus should be found on the homepage.

Usage[edit]

Click the Link under the graph to generate and download the pnml-file of the graph. Put this file into the folder "\path\to\hours\repo\workspace\behavior_model" - by default this should be (Win) "C:\Users\_username_\horus_repo1\ws1\behavior_model". In Horus you might to have to refresh the graphs with F5.


Horus lets you arrange the graph automatically if you want to - this might lead to a more clearly arranged graph.

Known limitations[edit]

What is not yet possible[edit]

  • Resources/Roles can not be used in Horus (Roles can be displayed atm)
  • nodes are not arranged automatically at the moment - manual interaction in Horus is necessary

What is absolutely not possible[edit]

  • the generated pnml-file is developed to work under Horus - there are other tools that won't work
  • conditionalOr-decisions are not supported by Horus, so it is modelled graphically within a text field.

Open Issues[edit]

  • sometimes files cannot be changed/saved in Horus -> might be a write-protection issue?


  • Problems defining a process itself
    • if using circles the starting node could be not connected
    • if you create a direct successor to a conditionalOR it will be displayed as a second starting node ...
