Improving Work Allocation Practices in Business Processes Supported by BPMS

BPMS (Business Process Management Systems) are responsible for the execu-tion of business process models, by delivering work activities to suitable agents (human or automatisms) that execute them. During the design-time, modelers have to specify the potential performers of a work activity according to their or-ganizational position or role. Once several workers may share the same role, dur-ing run-time all of them can be assigned by BPMS to execute a work activity. However, distinct persons have different personality traits and, in a specific piece of work (for instance, requiring special teamwork skills), some of them can per-form better than others. Addressing a gap in theory and practice of BPMS, in this paper we present a new approach that enables BPMS to assign (in run-time) the most suitable workers to perform specific work activities, grounded on the con-cept of psychological profile and taking into account technical, human and social aspects.
