This paper addresses the problem of describing and analyzing data manipulation within business process workflow specifications.We apply a modeldriven approach. We begin with business requirement specifications, consisting of an ontology and an associated set of normative rules, that define the ways in which business processes can interact. We then transform this specification into an Event-B specification. The resulting specification, by virtue of the Event-B formalism, is very close to a typical loosely coupled component-based implementation of a business system workflow, but has the additional value of being amenable to theorem proving techniques to check and refine data representation with respect to process evolution. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.
