Abstract

Industry 4.0 is a fast growing concept which has started to gain ground over the last few years and strives to achieve a higher and more efficient production rate through the usage of automations. This concept is directly correlated with Business Process Management because its implementation concerns the improvement of business processes. Business Process Modeling is a tool of Business Process Management which can depict the processes of an organization in order to be elaborated and improved. For that reason models are widely used for the better understanding of processes and as a first step of new concepts insertion, such as Industry 4.0, in an organization. Hence, a comprehensive framework of a modeling architecture is essential for a company which desires the transition to new concepts according to its needs, its processes and its structure. In this paper, a complete architecture which proposed in a company activating in gas industry is presented including the appropriate models for the recording of business processes and how Industry 4.0 principles could be incorporated to them.
