The development of business information systems has the communication gap that exists between business and software experts, because they live in their own well-defined and complex cultures. One place where this gap manifests itself is in the constant failure of software developers to fully capture the system requirements. Second example is the inability to exactly analyze and store business knowledge. In our experience, gathered during the last ten years, working on major software projects, not all system requirements are known at the start of the project and the customers expect that their discovery and refinement will form part of the project. Our solution of this dilemma is in the new methodology called BORM (Business and Object Relationship Modeling), which reuses the object-oriented approach known from the area of software engineering into the area of business process modeling. CraftCASE is the original Czech software tool supporting BORM. CraftCASE is developed to capture and analyze knowledge of process-based business systems. The integral part of the analysis using CraftCASE is object-oriented process diagram and process simulator.Keywords:
