To facilitate the vision of service-oriented manufacturing, Cloud Manufacturing (CMfg) will need to support business process model life-cycle management. In this paper, we propose the Business Process Cataloging and Classification System (BPCCS) to support that role. BPCCS can facilitate adaptation of business process models. We validate life-cycle management requirements for such a system and propose capabilities the system must have to address these requirements. We analyze related work in academia and industry as a basis for synthesizing a meta-model and a conceptual architecture for the system. We conclude that contextual information for business process models is a critical part of such a system and where the CMfg community can contribute new and valuable results.
