SPEM — Activity and step (p. 7-4)

  • Key: SPEM-49
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5219
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Activity and step (p. 7-4)
    The specification document states: "Although it is not explicitly
    prohibited, an Activity does not normally use the subWork structure
    inherited from WorkDefinition; instead decomposition within Activity is done
    using Steps". Steps are atomic elements. In practice, this constraints
    activity de-composition to two levels. We believe that this is not enough to
    model detailed and fine-grained processes.
    Proposed resolution: Remove Step from the metamodel and use the association
    parentwork-subwork to model Activity decomposition too.

    Reject. The presence of Step does not constrain activity decomposition
