John Clarkson is Professor of Engineering Design and Director of the Cambridge Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge, UK. After receiving a PhD in Engineering (Electrical Machines) from the university, he spent seven years as Manager of the Advanced Process Group for PA Consulting Group's Technology Division. His current research interests are in engineering design, particularly the development of design methodologies to address specific design issues.
Peter Heisig is a senior research associate in the Cambridge Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge, UK. He has previously worked for the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology, and in 2005 he founded eureki (European Research Center for Knowledge and Innovation) - a network of experts to help organisations improve the usage and creation of knowledge for innovation.
Sandor Vajna is Professor and Chair of Information Technologies in Mechanical Engineering at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany.

Modelling for Business Improvement contains the proceedings of the First International Conference on Process Modelling and Process Management (MMEP 2010) held in Cambridge, England, in March 2010. It contains contributions from an international group of leading researchers in the fields of process modelling and process management.
This conference will showcase recent trends in the modelling and management of engineering processes, explore potential synergies between different modelling approaches, gather and discuss future challenges for the management of engineering processes and discuss future research areas and topics.
Modelling for Business Improvement is divided into three main parts:
1. Theoretical foundation of modelling and management of engineering processes, and achievements in theory.
2. Experiences from management practice using various modelling methods and tools, and their future challenges.
3. New perspectives on modelling methods, techniques and tools.
