Process models are constructed using specific modeling methods or techniques. These techniques impart certain characteristics to the models they produce. Application of the software engineering principles of information hiding, top-down functional decomposition and stepwise refinement to process modeling imparts many desirable characteristics to the process models produced. This paper describes an approach to process modeling which applies these software engineering principles to control flow diagrams in order to produce software process models.
