A specification for Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) was proposed and recommended by the Business Modeling and Integration task force at the OMG (Object Management Group) meeting in December. Membership voting on the proposal is under way.
The following companies contributed to the specification:
Agile Enterprise Design, LLC
Cordys Nederland BV
International Business Machines Corporation
The specification defines an exchangeable modeling language for specification of a case type as an adaptive process supported by planning elements and a case file structure. It supports most of the knowledge worker facilities described in my blog post in July of 2011 entitled "A Knowledge Worker Cockpit."
However, much of the vision described in my blog depends on the runtime implementation of software products that apply this specifiction as well as the integration of those products with related systems. I expect there may be some early offerings in 2013.
