PRiM: An i*-based process reengineering method for information systems specification

Information system development can often be addressed as a business process reengineering practice, either because it automates

some human-based processes or because it replaces an existing legacy system. Therefore, observing and analysing current processes

can enable analysts to converge on the specification of the new system, generating and evaluating new system alternatives throughout.

In this paper, we propose a method to support this reengineering process that analyses the strengths and weaknesses of the current process;

considers the strategic needs of the organization; provides guidelines for the prescriptive construction of i* models; and drives the

systematic generation and evaluation of alternative technological and organizational solutions for the new system.
