  • Ghent university, Economics and Business Administrationjan.claes@ugent.be - www.janclaes.infoECIS Doctoral Consortium 20137/16Process of Process Modeling (PPM)Observational modeling sessions People construct models Every action on modeling canvas is logged Modeler information is collected through survey Different datasets• 120 students in Eindhoven 2010• 14 experts in Berlin 2010• 14 experts in Eindhoven 2011• 118 students in Eindhoven 2012

  • Ghent university, Economics and Business Administrationjan.claes@ugent.be - www.janclaes.infoECIS Doctoral Consortium 201311/16Structured Process Modeling (SPM)Structured process modeling Creating blocks ‘as a whole’ (before moving on tothe creation of the rest of the model)ACTACTX XACTProcess model block
  • Ghent university, Economics and Business Administrationjan.claes@ugent.be - www.janclaes.infoECIS Doctoral Consortium 201312/16Structured Process Modeling (SPM)Cognitive aspects Cognitive Load Theory (CLT)limited capacity of working memory Cognitive Fit Theory (CFT)effect increase if task representation fits
  • Ghent university, Economics and Business Administrationjan.claes@ugent.be - www.janclaes.infoECIS Doctoral Consortium 201313/16MethodologyDifferent studies Visualization Experts vs novices & how to train novices to become experts Definition SPM, quality, causal relation Influencing factors: modeler, case, tool, language, description Tool support: highlighting, errors/warnings, pairwise creation Generic application: abstraction, interpretation, notation
  • Ghent university, Economics and Business Administrationjan.claes@ugent.be - www.janclaes.infoECIS Doctoral Consortium 201314/16MethodologyMethodology Behavioral science versus design science Explorative, explanatory, confirmative Literature review• structured coding, problem solving, cognition• process model quality, visualization Experiments + empirical analysis• observational, controlled (treatment)• students, practitioners Post-task surveys• Quantitative, qualitative (actual, perceived)
