Reuse is a common discipline for decreasing software development time and for improving overall quality, independent from the domain. As business processes represent a fundamental asset of an organization, several concepts for enabling reuse during process modeling have been proposed. However, only few concrete examples for reusable process artifacts have been discussed so far. In this paper, we present the concept of process fragments and an example collection of process fragments for illustrating our reuse concept and for showing that it can ac-tually be applied in practice for an easier and faster development of process-based applications. The fragment examples demonstrate different characteristics such fragments may exhibit. We also argue that this work will encourage reuse of process logic in terms of fragments since it also provides an opportunity to design and develop a process fragment library for collecting process logic explicitly. As technical enabler for the approach we present a prototype called Fragmento.
