A New Simple Formulation of Workflow Patterns
Summer Computer Simulation Conference 2007 (SCSC 2007)
San Diego, California (USA), July 15-18, 2007
The workflow patterns play a more and more important role in the development and evaluations of workflow products today. In  Aalst et al. released twenty patterns describing the control-flow perspective of workflow systems. With the development of the applications of the workflow patterns the number of patterns increased to forty three in their latest paper . In this paper a new formulation of the workflow patterns which is based on a synchronization-based model of workflow logic and workflow semantics named Synchro-Net  is proposed. With the new formulation the workflow patterns can be described in a compact and consistent manner.
