Business process management systems are an important piece of infrastructure for digital transformation initiatives. Rapid development of executable business processes is a key requirement in this context. Even though there are various process modeling languages available, none of them is designed with the ambition to be code efficient and expressive at the same time. In this paper, we investigated the research question how a process scripting language can be defined that addresses the four requirements of code efficiency, control flow expressiveness, data processing and event processing. To this end, we designed and implemented a process scripting language based on Kotlin. To analyze the language regarding the four requirements, we use the language in a case study of a real-world process of our industry partner.
