What is Model and Meta-Model

Handbook of Research on Business Process Modeling
A model is an abstract representation of a system’s structure, function or behavior. A meta-model defines the basic constructs that may occur in a concrete model. Meta-models and models have a class-instance relationship: each model is an instance of a meta-model (Völter and Stahl, 2006).

This chapter introduces a view-based, model-driven approach for process-driven, service-oriented architectures. A typical business process consists of numerous tangled concerns, such as the process control flow, service invocations, fault handling, transactions, and so on. Our view-based approach separates these concerns into a number of tailored perspectives at different abstraction levels. On the one hand, the separation of process concerns helps reducing the complexity of process development by breaking a business process into appropriate architectural views. On the other hand, the separation of levels of abstraction offers appropriately adapted views to stakeholders, and therefore, helps quickly re-act to changes at the business level and at the technical level as well. Our approach is realized as a model-driven tool-chain for business process development.
