Research Impacts

Visualizing EPIs on existing business process models clarify environmental information for process participants from inside and outside of the organization so that they can monitor, control and improve their environmental performance. EPIs show process participants how their tasks and decisions affect environmental performance both individually and organizationally. The notation seeks to provide utility to practitioners and therefore will be evaluated and validated using rigorous research methods and empirical data.
