This paper presents a Business Decision Support System, implemented in terms of the BPMN and DMN standards, which provides a unified environment supporting interoperability for modelling the phenomena involved in material modelling. The proposed system successfully integrates materials modelling methodologies and knowledge-based systems with business process for decision making. This proposed use of the BPMN and DMN standards provides the missing link between business processes, materials science and engineering workflows in the context of composite material modelling, opening a new horizon in engineering industrial applications. The paper is complemented with an application case, which describes an initial example of successful representation of business process from the material modelling domain that includes decision models implemented with DMN in the chemical domain.

The paper describes the desing of distributed integration platform enabling to create complex coupled workflows from existing simulation tools. The main features as well as selected real world applications are presented.
This deliverable aims at formally defining the BDSS business layer actors and their interactions. The application cases proposed by industrial partners are exploited as information sources for the identification of actors and requirements for the business layer. They are inputs of a requirement identification process consisting of four steps:
- Creation of a text description of the business workflow underlying the application case
- Creation of a BPMN draft representation of the business workflow
- Refinement of the BPMN representation
- Creation of UML formal diagrams for actors and their interactions
For each application case, the outputs of the requirement identification process are:
- List of actors and goals
- Use-cases described in brief format
- UML use case diagrams
The document is structured as follows. The Introduction section describes the devised requirement identification process. Each application case has a corresponding section reporting: the business process model, actors and goals, and use cases. A Conclusion section closes the document.
