Coping with Exceptions in Agent-Based Workflow Enactments [chapter]

Joey Sik-Chun Lam, Frank Guerin, Wamberto Vasconcelos, Timothy J. Norman
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
When unexpected exceptions occur during the enactment of a workflow we would like agents to be able to cope with them intelligently.  ...  Typical workflow management systems are centralised and rigid; they cannot cope with the unexpected flexibly.  ...  This information is important both for deciding the institutional updates, and for finding suitable candidates when coping with exceptions; however, this duplication is not optimal.  ...

Building Multi-Agent Systems for Workflow Enactment and Exception Handling [chapter]

Joey Lam, Frank Guerin, Wamberto Vasconcelos, Timothy J. Norman
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we describe a method for building a norm-governed multi-agent system which can enact a set of workflows and cope with exceptions.  ...  Multi-agent systems offer the possibility of enacting workflows in a distributed manner, via software agents which are intelligent and autonomous, and respect the constraints in a norm-governed organisation  ...  In this paper we explore the issue of building agent systems which can enact workflows in a distributed fashion, and which can cope with exceptions as they arise.  ...

Goal-based design pattern for delegation of work in health care teams

Adela Grando, Mor Peleg, David Glasspool
2010 Studies in Health Technology and Informatics  
how a domain and language independent design pattern, defined as networks of tasks and goals, can be used to formally specify the transfer of responsibility and accountability when tasks are delegated in  ...  But in case the provider cannot cope with the exception he can inform the client and transfer to the client the responsibility of dealing with the exception.  ...  During delegation, the responsibility for enacting a service and handling exceptions is passed from the requester (client) to a performer (provider); when the provider cannot cope with the exceptions he  ...

Continuation-passing enactment of distributed recoverable workflows

Weihai Yu, Jie Yang
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '07  
The approach is of continuation-passing style, where continuations, or the reminder of the executions, are passed along with asynchronous messages for workflow enactment.  ...  We propose a fully decentralized approach to workflow enactment that is not subject to these obstacles. In addition, it supports automatic recovery.  ...  Distributed Workflow Enactment with CEKK The enactment of a flow in our approach is the process of transitions of CEKK states performed by the agents.  ...

Integrating Workflow into Agent-Based Distributed Data Mining Systems [chapter]

Chayapol Moemeng, Xinhua Zhu, Longbing Cao
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In agent-based distributed data mining (ADDM), agents are an integral part of the system and can seamlessly incorporate with workflows.  ...  Agent-based workflow has been proven its potential in overcoming issues in traditional workflow-based systems, such as decentralization, organizational issues, etc.  ...  Conclusions We present an integration of agent-based workflows with agent-based distributed data mining.  ...

A Model of Co-ordination Support for Unanticipated Situations [chapter]

S. Ossowski, A. García-Serrano
1996 Advanced IT Tools  
Finally, the architecture of an agent-based support system that assists flexible exception management is sketched.  ...  A mayor drawback of today's workflow management approaches is their difficulty in responding adequately to unexpected events.  ...  In this section we are concerned with the social mechanism of "helping each other out": actors are attentive to their workloads, and when one of them cannot cope with it, others assume part of the work  ...
