 +===== Abstract =====
 +Designing business models is a complicated and error prone
 +task. On the one hand, business models need to be intuitive and easy
 +to understand. On the other hand, ambiguities may lead to different interpretations
 +and false consensus. Moreover, to configure process-aware
 +information systems (e.g., a workflow system), the business model needs
 +to be transformed into an executable model. Event-driven Process Chains
 +(EPCs), but also other informal languages, are intended as a language
 +to support the transition from a business model to an executable model.
 +Many researchers have assigned formal semantics to EPCs and are using
 +these semantics for execution and verification. In this paper, we use a
 +different tactic. We propose a two-step approach where first the informal
 +model is reduced and then verified in an interactive manner. This
 +approach acknowledges that some constructs are correct or incorrect no
 +matter what interpretation is used and that the remaining constructs
 +require human judgment to assess correctness. This paper presents a
 +software tool that supports this two-step approach and thus allows for
 +the verification of real-life EPCs as illustrated by two case studies.
