Business processes are subject to changes originating from customer needs and government regulations etc. A single change may set off a series of further changes which transform the initial change into flows of changes that propagate through the entire business process. This paper focuses on the challenging problem of change analysis for the three-level artifact-centric business process model. First, we identify the various types of changes that can happen to the three levels of the model. Then we present the mechanisms including sample change analysis patterns and the process element relation graph for analysing the different levels of changes. This research can reduce the complexity tasks of change management for artifact-centric business processes.
