    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


    In this paper, a tool, called SPMonitor, to monitor and visualize of run-time execution productive processes is proposed. SPMonitor enables dynamically visualizing and monitoring workflows running in a system. It displays versatile information about currently executed workflows providing better understanding about processes and the general functionality of the domain. Moreover, SPMonitor enhances cooperation between different stakeholders by offering extensive communication and problem solving features that allow actors concerned to react more efficiently to different anomalies that may occur during a workflow execution. The ideas discussed are validated through the study of real case related to airbus assembly lines.
