The increasing adoption of process-aware information systems (PAISs) has resulted in large process model collections. To support users having different perspectives on these processes and related data, a PAIS should provide personalized views on process models. Especially, changing process models is a frequent use case in PAISs due to evolving business processes or unplanned situations. While process views have been suggested as abstractions for visualizing large process models, no work exists on how to change these models based on respective views. This software demonstration presents the proView framework for changing large process models through updates of corresponding process views, while ensuring up-to-dateness and consistency of all other process views related to the changed process model. Respective update operations can
be applied to a process view and are correctly propagated to the underlying process model. Furthermore, all views related to this process model are then correctly migrated to its new version as well. Overall, the proView framework enables domain experts to evolve large process models over time based on appropriate model abstractions.
