2013 Seminal Contributions to Information Systems Engineering  
Time is an important aspect of business process management. Here we revisit the following contributions of early workflow time management approaches: representation of temporal information and temporal constraints, analysis of temporal constraint satisfiability, and computation of workflow execution plans that satisfy temporal constraints. In particular, we summarize some of the most important research efforts and results in: (a) modeling temporal aspects of workflows, (b) analysis of temporal
