Business Modelling

Consistent naming is particularly important for Business Capabilities and Business Processes as it is easy to end up in a situation where Processes look like Capabilities and vice versa. Therefore the following naming approach for Instances these two meta classes is recommended:
  • Business Capabilities: 
    • <Noun><Verb>, e.g. Credit Management
  • Business Processes: 
    • <Verb><Noun>, e.g. Manage Credit
Taking this approach should help to ensure that a separation between these two layers of abstraction is consistently maintained.
