Business process(workflow) analysis has been recognized as a core step to building information systems. However, most analysts have recognized that deriving consistent business process artifacts even in a simple business domain is very difficult, since most analysis methods give the designers narrative and/or diagrammatic tools that do not support rigorous analysis rules. This often generates inconsistent analysis results, leading to create useless information systems and resulting in tremendous budget wastes. To overcome this weakness, this paper presents a declarative business process modeling method called contract-collaboration net(cc-net), which is not only somewhat formal but also useful to the practitioners. A case study on bank domain is presented to illustrate our approach.
