Business Processes in Disaster Risk Information Management

Command Support Systems based on cross-level and cross-organizational integration are widely missing. Joint projects across borders, domains, organizational boundaries, including Private Sector, can not only improve shared information processing but also raise awareness in the benefit of building on sound management principles, including prerequisite competences education and development especially for the huge variety of administrational / organizational units involved.

BPMN is urgently needed to formalize and guarantee fast and reliable procedures for Risk Information generation, documentation, analysis, flow and use in all the different phases of disaster management. special attention is paid to the following details: Service Level Agreements, decision and action contexts, dependencies, scenarios and alternatives, boundary conditions, exceptions, thresholds, deviations from compatibility requirements (including highly dynamic time-varying facts and actors).

Current investigations in management deficits of the 2021 Central European Flood Disaster indicate on the massive disaster losses and humanitarian consequences of the lack of timely preparation and inadequate incoherent information processing. Post-disaster detailed analysis of goal-reaching, performance and effectiveness control is in the key interest of all those that suffered (including post-event long-term health, social and economic consequences).
