BP Variability Case Studies Development using different Modeling Approaches [article]

Clara Ayora, Victoria Torres, Vicente Pelechano
2011 arXiv   pre-print
Depending on the context in which each author faces the modeling problem, we find different approaches (C-EPC, C-YAWL, FEATURE-EPC, PESOA, PROVOP, or WORKLETS).  ...  In this report we present four of the most representative approaches (C-EPC, PESOA, PROVOP and WORKLETS) which are presented by means of the different case studies found in the literature.  ...  In this parent process, an extensible repertoire (or catalogue) of worklets is maintained for each nominated task.  ...

A Novel Approach for Bioinformatics Workflow Discovery

Walaa Nagy, Hoda M.
2014 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
On the other hand, Web services are increasingly used as the preferred method for accessing and processing the information coming from the diverse life science sources.  ...  In this work we provide an efficient approach for creating bioinformatic workflow for all-service architecture systems (i.e., all system components are services ).  ...  Each task of a workflow is linked to an extensible repertoire of actions. In this work, we present those repertoire-member actions as "worklets".  ...

Cost-Informed Operational Process Support [chapter]

Moe T. Wynn, Hajo A. Reijers, Michael Adams, Chun Ouyang, Arthur H. M. ter Hofstede, Wil M. P. van der Aalst, Michael Rosemann, Zahirul Hoque
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The feasibility of our approach is demonstrated using a prototype implementation in the YAWL workflow environment.  ...  The ability to steer business operations in alignment with the true origins of costs, and to be informed about this on a real-time basis, allows businesses to increase profitability.  ...  The Worklet Service traverses its rule set for the activity, querying the Cost Service to evaluate cost-based rule expressions (1.2).  ...

Realisation of Cost-Informed Process Support Within the YAWL Workflow Environment [chapter]

M. Adams, M. T. Wynn, C. Ouyang, A. H. M. ter Hofstede
2015 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
A primary reason for this disconnect is the limited system-based support for cost-informed decisions at the process-operational level in real time.  ...  The paper defines success criteria that a WfMS should meet to provide such support, and discusses a reference implementation within the YAWL workflow environment that demonstrates how the various types  ...  We would like to thank all our colleagues who were involved at various stages of this research study for their valuable input. They include Prof. Wil van der Aalst, Prof. Hajo Reijers, Prof.  ...

Managing Process Model Complexity Via Abstract Syntax Modifications

Marcello La Rosa, Petia Wohed, Jan Mendling, Arthur H. M. ter Hofstede, Hajo A. Reijers, Wil M. P. van der Aalst
2011 IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics  
The paper concludes with a comparative overview of the degree of support for these patterns offered by state-of-theart languages and language implementations.  ...  It is thus hard to obtain comparative insight into the degree of support offered for various complexity reducing mechanisms by stateof-the-art languages and tools.  ...  This approach has been implemented in the YAWL system where Worklets can be defined to tasks via the Rules Editor, and instantiated via the Worklet Service.  ...

Approach and Refinement Strategies for Flexible Choreography Enactment [chapter]

Andreas Weiß, Santiago Gómez Sáez, Michael Hahn, Dimka Karastoyanova
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Since domain problems in CDC systems are expressed as service choreographies and enacted by service orchestrations, we propose an approach introducing placeholder modeling constructs usable both on the  ...  level of choreographies and orchestrations, and a classification of strategies for their refinement to executable workflows.  ...  Acknowledgment This work is funded by the projects FP7 EU-FET 600792 ALLOW Ensembles and the German DFG within the Cluster of Excellence (EXC310) Simulation Technology.  ...

Change patterns and change support features – Enhancing flexibility in process-aware information systems

Barbara Weber, Manfred Reichert, Stefanie Rinderle-Ma
2008 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
The presented work will not only facilitate the selection of technologies for realizing flexible PAISs, but can also be used as a reference for implementing flexible PAISs.  ...  The emergence of different process support paradigms and the lack of methods for comparing existing approaches enabling PAIS changes have made the selection of adequate process management technology difficult  ...  In addition, we would like to thank Shazia Shadiq, Michael Adams and Werner Wild for the many fruitful discussions, which helped us to significantly  ...

2015 Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures - An International Journal  
This paper introduces process extensibility as a new paradigm for customising reference processes and managing their evolution over time.  ...  Process extensibility mandates a clear recognition of the different responsibilities and interests of reference model vendors and consumers, and is concerned with keeping the effort of customer-side reference  ...  The Extensibility Service takes responsibility for the proper execution of an extension within the scope of an extension point of a reference process.  ...
