A BPMN Extension for the annotation of HACCP plans in hospital protocols

This paper introduces a Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) extension designed to enrich the flowcharts included in the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) plans for hospital protocols. From previous works by the authors, a number of issues were identified regarding the application of BPMN on actual hospital HACCP plans. Those drawbacks guided the extension presented. In this line, the main aim of this work is to able to transfer several certain pieces of information, usually expressed just in natural language on attached documents, into graphic-based models including machine understandable information. The provided extension makes possible the adoption of advanced analysis mechanisms for the traceability of HACCP systems. A real world example taken for an actual hospital HACCP deployment is used to show the benefits of the proposal.
