The subject of this PhD thesis lies on *the intersection of the three 
research areas*: *business process modeling, formal methods and formal 
concept analysis*. We propose to explore formal methods and formal 
concept analysis (FCA) and to build a novel approach for agile process 
modelling, simulation and analysis. In particular we propose to apply 
these techniques for unstructured processes such as case management 
processes (CMP). Case management processes have multiple applications, 
including licensing and permitting in government, insurance application 
and claim processing in insurance, patient care and medical diagnosis in 
healthcare, etc.

*The first challenge*related to this PhD thesis is to find an 
appropriate (mathematical) formalism for representation and reasoning 
about case management processes (CMP) while ensuring an appropriate 
level of agility. We suggest that, instead of following a predefined 
execution scenario, a process navigates in the process “state space”, 
dynamically adjusting its path based on the current state, current 
situation and navigation rules. Initial navigation rules for process 
guidance based on Formal Concept Analysis and Galois lattices need to be 

*The second challenge*related to this PhD thesis is to explore the 
opportunities provided by automated model checking, theorem proving and 
formal concept analysis for process model validation and for guided 
process execution.
