Business process (BP) modelling is an active area of research due to its multiple applications. For systems that support/monitor operators to perform their tasks (i.e., tasks of a given BP), a formal representation is essential. Various BP ontologies are available to formally represent BP. In this paper, we review and compare a set of nine BP ontologies according to their ability to represent process specification and process execution in a fine-grained way to enable task monitoring. The comparison shows that, on the one hand, ontologies developed from scratch establish a clear distinction between process specification and process execution, but do not allow to represent workflow constraints required for process execution. On the other hand, most of the ontologies, that are ontological versions of existing BP modeling languages, focus only on process specifications but do not represent process execution, or mix the representation of BP specification and execution.
