    • Finding the balance between precision and openness is the special province of language, and scientists are finding new ways to harvest value from emerging languages that strike that balance in new arenas. The international standard ISO 18629 is a process specification language (PSL) that provides clear and concise definitions of information going from one system to another. Leaning on the other end of the balance is the Web Ontology Language (OWL), designed for use on the Semantic Web, which provides more computability than precise definitions.

    • The Business Management Ontology (BMO) brings together business process design, project management, requirements management, and business performance management (in the form of balanced scorecards). As such, it forms the basis for an integrated, vendor-neutral, Business Management Knowledge Base.
  • A process-ontological framework called APT (2001), by Johanna Seibt, Universitet Aarhus, Denmark
    • (needs paid subscription)
    • The paper reports some results of the author's recent work on a process-ontological framework called APT. APT is based on the notion of a free process, a new category in ontology, with Broad's / Sellars' "subjectless" or "pure" processes as their closest cognates. With a pointer to verbal and nominal aspect shift as background motivation I argue that basic classificatory terms of common sense reasoning (activity, event, thing, stuff, property etc.) can be treated as different types of free processes. After introducing essential elements of the formal framework of APT (a non-standard extensional mereology with a non-transitive part-relation) I sketch APT-classifications of basic and complex processes, based on five main descriptive parameters: homomerity pattern, participant structure, dynamic composition, dynamic shape, and dynamic context.

    • The Center for Process Studies (CPS) seeks to promote the common good by means of the relational approach found in process thought. Process metaphysics, in general, seeks to elucidate the developmental nature of reality, emphasizing becoming rather than static existence or being.
  • Physical Emergence and Process Ontology, by William M. Kallfelz (2009)
    • Alfred North Whitehead introduces in Process and Reality the notion that the philosophy of organism is a cell-theory of actuality. I argue here that the most promising venue for a concordance with process ontology vis-à-vis extant physical theory includes the notions of dynamical and ontological emergence in the physical sciences, as described in Silberstein and McGeever (1999) as well as in Kronz and Tiehen (2002). Here I draw on my previous claims (1997, 2005, 2006) to show in more general terms how process ontology provides a more unified characterization of ontological and dynamical emergence.

    • According to Whitehead, the world is a process which is the becoming of actual entities (or actual occasions). They endure only a short time, and they are processes of their own self creation. There are also eternal objects to be understood as conceptual objects. They enter into the actual entity becoming concrete without being actualities themselves. Although novel actual entities are progressively added to the world, there are no new eternal objects. They are the same for all actual entities.
