Interaction behavior between processes of different organizational units such as an enterprise and its suppliers can be modeled by choreographies. When organizations decide, for instance, to gain more control about their suppliers to minimize transaction costs, they may decide to insource these companies. This especially includes the integration of the partner processes into the organizationís processes. Existing works are able to merge single-instance BPEL process interactions where each process model is only instantiated once during choreography execution. However, there exist different interaction scenarios where one process interacts with several instances of another process and where the number of instances involved is not known at design time but determined during runtime of the choreography. In this work we investigate these interaction scenarios and extend the process consolidation approach in a way that we can emulate the multi-instance interaction scenarios in the merged process model.
