Open Process Handbook / News: Recent posts

MIT Stand-alone Research Process Handbook released

The Open Process Handbook Initiative (see <http://ccs.mit.edu/ophi/>http://ccs.mit.edu/ophi/) is happy to announce the availability of the MIT Stand-alone Research Process Handbook on SourceForge. This long standing, Windows based system was collaboratively developed by researchers at the MIT Center for Coordination Science (<http://ccs.mit.edu/ph>http://ccs.mit.edu/ph), and allows for rapid drag and drop construction, editing, and navigation to processes with multiple relationship types. This system also supports the bulk import and export of processes and process collections using the Process Interchange Format (PIF).
<p>
This research system and its associated knowledge base about business processes are now being released under the Apache 2.0 open source license as part of the Open Process Handbook Initiative (OPHI).
<p>
Together with the recently released Phios Process Repository and the MIT Web-based Research version, there are now three versions of the Process Handbook available through SourceForge.
<p>
A key goal of the OPHI community will now be to develop a plan for creating a single integrated Process Handbook system or at least an architecture for exchanging content among different software packages.
<p>
Anyone interested in developing or using the software or content for the Process Handbook should join the main OPHI mailing list at <http://mailman.mit.edu/mailman/listinfo/ophi-discuss> http://mailman.mit.edu/mailman/listinfo/ophi-discuss
