Conceptual framework and architecture for service mediating workflow management

Jinmin Hu, Paul Grefen
2003 Information and Software Technology  
The service-oriented paradigm requires a high level of flexibility of current workflow management systems and support for Business-to-Business (B2B) collaboration to realize collaborative enterprises.  ...  Different from other proposals that extend the workflow process model to obtain flexibility at run time, our approach is to separate the enactment specification from the workflow model through late binding  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Jochem Vonk for his work on setting up the MQSeries Workflow system and assistance with this software and proofreading this report.  ...

An uncoordinated asynchronous checkpointing model for hierarchical scientific workflows

Rafael Tolosana-Calasanz, José Ángel Bañares, Pedro Álvarez, Joaquín Ezpeleta, Omer Rana
2010 Journal of computer and system sciences (Print)  
At workflow-level, the usually adopted approach is to establish a checkpointing frequency in the system which determines the moment at which a global workflow checkpoint -a snapshot of the whole workflow  ...  Scientific workflow systems often operate in unreliable environments, and have accordingly incorporated different fault tolerance techniques.  ...  A checkpointing and rollback recovery model for hierarchical scientific workflows The model can be expressed by three different nets: (i) the workflow enactment engine (the top hierarchy system net), (  ...

Supporting Large-Scale End User Specification of Workflows, Work Coordination and Tool Integration

John Grundy, John Hosking, Warwick Mugridge
1998 Journal of Organizational and End User Computing  
Workflow Management Systems are a common example of an end user development system, in that they support end user specification of work process models, end user enactment (running) of these models, and  ...  We describe a novel workflow system which provides visual support for end users to specify both simple and complex aspects of workflows, including workflow models, communication and collaboration techniques  ...  Thus end users of workflows require support for not only modelling, enacting and evolving workflows, but support for coordinating their work with others and integrating a variety of different tools into  ...

Tool Support for Dynamic Development Processes [chapter]

Thomas Heer, Markus Heller, Bernhard Westfechtel, René Wörzberger
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Altogether, dynamic development processes are supported through a synergistic combination of process and workflow management systems, integrating process planning and enactment.  ...  Therefore, we have developed tools for integrating process management and workflow management such that repetitive fragments of the overall development process may be enacted in workflow management systems  ...  All work reported in this paper has been performed at Department of Computer Science 3, RWTH Aachen University, under the supervision of Manfred Nagl, who served as a speaker of three consecutive research  ...

Using Workflow Context for Automated Enactment Tracking

Thomas Sauer, Kerstin Maximini
2006 European Conference on Case-Based Reasoning  
Workflows are getting a more and more pervasive concept for modeling arbitrary activities. The resulting workflow definitions will convey knowledge how and when to apply the right procedures.  ...  In order to allow planning and quality assurance nevertheless, the tasks currently enacted within an organization must be known.  ...  Regarding workflow planning and enactment support, several systems have been implemented.  ...
