%X The Petri nets are the first standard for business
process modeling. Most probably, it is one of the core reasons why
all new standards created afterwards have to be so reformed as to
reach the stage of mapping the new standard onto Petri nets. The paper presents a business process repository based on a
universal database. The repository provides the possibility the data
about a given process to be stored in three different ways. Business
process repository is developed with regard to the reformation of a
given model to a Petri net in order to be easily simulated. Two different techniques for business process simulation based on
Petri nets - Yasper and Woflan are discussed. Their advantages and
drawbacks are outlined. The way of simulating business process
models, stored in the Business process repository is shown.
