Abstract. Research on quality issues of business process models has recently begun to explore the process of creating process models. With growing complexity, the creation of business process models requires the presence of several, potentially spatially distributed, stakeholders. As a consequence, the question arises how this affects the process of process modeling. In this paper, we present an extension to Cheetah Experimental Platform, specifically designed for investigating how process models are collaboratively created. Furthermore, we illustrate how various levels of interactions are supported by our modeling editor and outline its usage for analyzing the process of collaboratively creating process models. We believe that this extension is a first step toward understanding the process of process modeling in a collaborative setting which will ultimately help us to develop better process modeling environments.
