Business process modeling is a complex, time consuming and error prone task. However the efforts made to model business processes are seldom reused beyond their original purpose. Rather than modeling of business processes from scratch, analysts can drive process models, by redesigning the existing ones. A repository is, therefore, necessary to store and manage process models for future reuse. In this paper we, discuss requirements for a process model repository that would support reuse of process models, review existing process model repositories based on the requirement. Finally we analyse and point out major challenges of existing repositories that affect reuse. This survey will be a base to develop the future efficient searchable, user-friendly, useful and well-organized process model repositories.
