In recent years, organisations have been undergoing a thorough transformation towards highly flexible and agile collaborations. Organisations are required to dynamically create and manage collaborative business processes to grasp market opportunities. Different from conventional business processes, a collaborative business process involves multiple parties and their business processes . Thus, complex instance correspondences may exist at both build time and run time. Here, we choose to characterise instance correspondences in terms of cardinality and correlations. Thereby, we can define and represent statical and dynamic correspondence when modelling and executing a collaborative business process.
