Business processes in today's enterprises are dynamic, flexible, and sometimes ad hoc. The enterprise often uses not only process management systems but also various tools, resources, and services to support process execution. Process spaces can provide a new abstraction for process management in such scenarios. Process-space management systems can enable definition, analysis, and management of process spaces over distributed process artifacts.
