S-BPM targets Business Process Management and has been applied in various business domains to model business processes and implement workflow support. This chapter investigates S-BPM’s capabilities to support workplace and process design as well as process execution in production companies. Thereby, industrial capabilities of S-BPM are structured along the three dimensions of socio-technical systems which need to be considered for Industry 4.0 developments. Technological capabilities address the ability to integrate processes on different automation levels (planning, monitoring, real-time execution, etc.). Organizational capabilities discuss the potential of subject orientation for organizational development, and human capability development investigates how humans in production companies could be supported when involving them in workplace (re)design.
