Abstract
Using our 50+ person-years of experience with business process (BP) modeling, BPEL, SOA, and HCI design, we propose a BP Transformation Tool for warfighters and other SMEs that will cut time to create BPs up to 80% and training time to learn tool as much as 40-fold, compared to industry-leading BP design studio tools from IBM. We will extend our LiquidApps tools suite, used today by primes to rapidly design HCIs for Fleet, to create a higher abstraction level for SMEs to rapidly design mission-oriented BPs into capability packs or FnEPs, and guide and analyze on-the-fly reconfiguration to meet changing mission objectives by exploiting disparate and geographically dispersed services. We can dynamically align data models and messages from net-centric services via fuzzy logic, inference, and cognitive learning to overcome information disparities, unlike today's world of static, not reconfigurable, data. Additionally, a reusable BP and abstract services catalog allows the system to learn over time to reduce work for SMEs in future. Our reuse component helps expose web services for stovepiped but time-proven C2/C4I systems (e.g., GCCS-M, NTCSS, JPMIS, CLIP). Our techniques support composing then orchestrating efficient mission-oriented applications that infuse real-time data but meet system performance demands and QoS guarantees.
