NEFFICS, represented by Cordys and SINTEF, has been involved in the development of the revised proposal for Case Management Modeling and Notation (CMMN) specification 1.0 [OMG Document bmi/2012-11-05]. This document is an initial specification for review and comment by OMG members.

NEFFICS, represented by Cordys and SINTEF, has been involved in the development of the revised proposal for Case Management Modeling and Notation (CMMN) specification 1.0.
- http://www.omg.org/cgi-bin/doc?bmi/12-02-09 (Restricted to OMG members)
The specification covers the following:
- Define Case Management Model, notation, and operational semantics of the model.
- Leverage a content management model based on properties, documents, folders, and relationships.
- Leverage a standard expression and query language as the default CMMN expression and query language.
- Specify how case events and constraints may be applied.
- Specify interchange format for Case Management Model (XMI and XSD).
This revised proposal is a joint submission by BizAgi Limited, Cordys Nederland BV, International Business Machines Corporation, Oracle Incorporated, SAP AG, Singularity Incorporated and supported by Agile Enterprise Design, LLC, Stiftelsen SINTEF, TIBCO Software and Trisotech.
Access to this document is restricted to OMG members. If you are interested in reviewing the document please contact us and we will forward your request to the submission team.
The objective of the CMMN (Case Management Model and Notation) specification is to change the way knowledge work is done. This includes a wide range of knowledge worker activities involving planning (e.g., business strategic planning initiatives), follow-up (e.g., maintenance and repairs), collaboration (e.g.. specification development), record-keeping (e.g., audits), decision-making (e.g., court cases), and problem resolution (e.g., customer service). Traditionally these activities are tracked and coordinated by people with update of computer records as an ancillary task.
The Case Management Process Modeling (CMPM) RFP [OMG Document bmi/2009-09-23] solicits proposals for a meta-model extension to BPMN 2.0 (Business Process Modeling and Notation) to support modeling of case management processes.
In case management each execution of a process involves a particular situation, a case, and a desired outcome for that case. Each case involves a particular subject (a person, a legal action, an insurance claim, etc.) and the actions performed related to that subject to achieve the desired result.
