Case Law Review – T 0702/08



Claimed Subject Matter:

Process Monitoring.

The claim referred generally to “process objects” and “task objects”.


On the facts the Board considered the term “object” to have a broad meaning encompassing the general concept of a “goal” or “objective” at an administrative management level; there was no unambiguous correlation between the described (business and process) “objects” and object-oriented programming. This suggests that a specific technical mapping between abstract concepts and their technical implementation needs to be set out in any description.
