Abstract

© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016. Given two process models, the problem of behavioral comparison is that of determining if these models are behaviorally equivalent (e.g., by trace equivalence) and, if not, identifying how can the differences be presented in a compact manner? Behavioral profiles have been proposed as a convenient abstraction for this problem. A behavioral profile is a matrix, where each cell encodes a behavioral relation between a pair of tasks (e.g., causality or conflict). Thus, the problem of behavioral comparison can be reduced to matrix comparison. It has been observed that while behavioral profiles can be efficiently computed, they are not accurate i..
