As a consequence, the Business Process Management (BPM) has turned into a very significant field of interest for organizations competitiveness, given the information and communication technologies integrator role that BPM plays. Therefore, the Software Engineering (SE) field needs to incorporate the study and management of business processes and in the same way SE can actively contribute in the management of business processes by providing suitable methodologies, techniques and tools.
