The analysis of business process models gains more and more attention in IS research. Several analysis approaches have been developed. All of them provide different features, such as syntax checking or pattern recognition. This paper investigates the applicability and relevance of business process model analysis approaches using a case study from financial services consulting. Two research contributions are provided. First, an overview about common model analysis features and its relevance for consulting processes are provided. Second, the applicability of the automatic business process model analysis approaches is investigated. Results show that the majority of features can raise efficiency of analyses in business process reengineering projects.
