What is JABBAH?
JABBAH is a Java Aplication framework for the translation Between BPM (Business Process Models) And HTN-PDDL (Hierarchical Planning Domains).
The JABBAH system provides a neat tool for analysts that need to perform resource allocation analysis on business workflows, embedding a non-trivial transformation of BPMN-expressed workflows in terms of Hierarchical Task Networks. By providing a fully automated support of the analysis, allowing engineers to exploit the vastly diffused Business Process Management Notation (BPMN) standard for workflow specification, and neatly presenting the results, this system may appeal a very wide and relevant audience. Hencefore, JABBAH may have a considerable potential impact outside the planning community.
Where can I find further details?
A scientific paper about JABBAH was presented at ICKEPS 2009 (Award of excellence), and further improvements were presented in BPM 2010 Demo Track.
A extended scientific paper has been recently published at the Knowledge Engineering Review journal, available here.
Have a look at the new video screencast as well.
