Social BPM (Business Process Management) has become a new research hotspot in business process management field because of its capability of handling the flexibility and dynamics of process in social circumstance by means of integration of social software and BPM. The key technique is process modelling, and note worthily the process modelling is more complex in social BPM than in traditional BPM. This paper presents the definition of social business process model to identify the difference with the traditional business process model and gives a prototype of social BPM system. The modeller in the prototype system may be a common user without professional knowledge, so a tag-based process recommendation method is proposed to facilitate modelling. The experiment result shows that the method is valid and effective in computer-aided intelligent process modelling.
