MODELLING THE DYNAMIC RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN WORKFLOW COMPONENTS

L. Pudhota, E. Chang, J. Davis

Abstract

Whether the economy is strong or weak, competition is fierce. The need for business change to maintain a competitive edge comes faster in this rough business environment causing the business process model to get more dynamic and complex. However, one has to manage it so the efficiency of business processes are maximised. This paper develops a modelling approach for dynamic business processes, defining exceptions and enabling business strategies to be captured vigorously while simultaneously allowing changes to be handled. We introduce the MAO workflow model, and we propose the automation of workflow components using MDA.
