Master thesis: Visualization of a DTO

The idea of using a digital twin of an organization (DTO for short) is increasingly being discussed as a fundamental concept for the implementation of business transformations. With a digital twin of an organization, the goal is to mirror the entire business organization as a real-time digital map. In doing so, many different aspects from business processes, organizational structures, business object structures, IT systems and the strategy of a company must be modeled and linked with each other. This makes a transparent management of these numerous logical links necessary. Major challenges lie here in the implementation of adequate access to this information and its preparation and presentation for users of a DTO who work with it in various roles. The high complexity results from the combination possibilities, which then lead to a coherent information network of these aspects. In many cases, these relationships between process-related, strategic and operational aspects of an organization can no longer be mapped in two dimensions, i.e. a more advanced visualization concept for the DTO is needed.

In the context of this work, based on an existing tool for the construction and use of a DTO, a concept for a corresponding visualization of these relationships is to be developed and prototypically implemented.

Bachelor thesis: Automation of layout optimizations for business process models

Business processes are a logical sequence of operational activities1. These processes are often modeled as graphs using formal languages (e.g. Petri nets2, BPMN 2.0). Business process modeling tools assist in visualizing and managing these business processes. Nevertheless, the clear representation of processes with hundreds or even thousands of interacting activities is complex and time-consuming due to the manual arrangement.

In this environment, numerous algorithms already exist (e.g. force-based drawing3 and hierarchical drawing4), which serve to represent the structure of a model or a graph as clearly as possible.

The goal of this work is to derive an algorithm based on such algorithms that is suitable for automated layout optimizations of business process models and thus to allow modelers to automatically arrange flow or other models of a business process in such a way that they are as clear as possible.

For the implementation, it is to be examined which algorithms are basically possible for this purpose. These will be compared with each other and the respective advantages and disadvantages will be discussed. The selected algorithm(s) will then be practically evaluated on the basis of a prototypical implementation. For this purpose, an existing business process modeling tool is to be further extended.
