We propose to develop a robust framework, called the Process Knowledge Integration and Management Framework (PKIMF), to support the complete lifecycle of enterprise process knowledge that natively use the Process Specification Language (PSL). PKIMF uses a dashboard approach to design, analyze, integrate, exchange, and manage process knowledge. Its features and capabilities include the use of a process model repository to store, retrieve, modify, and configure process models; process model composition or process "stitching"; process design assistance; process model export, import and automated translator generators; ontology mapping; and process knowledge dissemination with links to external knowledge sources.
