The images of lace textile are particularly difficult to be analyzed in digital form using classical image processing techniques. The major reasons of this difficulty emerge from the complex nature of lace which generally has different textures in its constituents like the background and patterns. In this paper, we study the behavior of Image Histo...
Conference Paper
The Business Process Models describe and formalize the operations, constraints and policies of an organization. These models have firstly been used as abstract views of all the processes implied in an organisation. These served as inputs and outputs of the business analysis and re-engineering activities with no explicit relationship with the IT inf...

The optimization of logistic processes can support the desired growth and consistent continuity of logistics. In this paper, we present a software framework for logistic...
Conference Paper
The business process models are often subjected to change rapidly in order to cope with the market demands. It may be useful for companies to adapt a monitoring mechanism to achieve flexible business process models. It is also desirable to control the ripple effects of a change on whole or part of the business process and its running instances. It...

Conference Paper
The emergence of BPMN as a standard notation to express the business processes is based on its simplicity of notations and its exhaustive expressiveness. Nevertheless the lack of formal semantics in the BPMN can cause syntactic and structural errors. The former requires less effort to be checked, while the later usually requires attention to prove...

Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) has emerged as a standard notation to express the business process models. A lack of formal semantics in the BPMN can cause the syntactic and structural errors. The former requires less effort to be checked, while the later usually needs a complex state-space analysis to prove some properties, like the dead...
