Web service-based workflow management systems have garnered considerable attention for automating and scheduling dependent operations. Such systems often support user preferences, e.g., time of completion, but with the rebirth of distributed computing via the grid/cloud, new challenges are abound: multiple disparate data sources, networks, nodes, and the potential for moving very large datasets. In this paper, we present a framework for integrating QoS support in a service workflow composition

The algorithm, equipped with a framework for defining cost models on service completion times and error propagation, composes service workflows which can adapt to user's QoS preferences. System Architecture Overview An overview of the system is presented here while detailed descriptions can be found in previous works [6, 7, 8] .
