COMPONENT-BASED MODELLING OF ORGANISATIONAL RESOURCES USING COLOURED PETRI NETS

Khodakaram Salimifard

Abstract

Collaborative software applications such as workflow management systems require a clear separation between process model and resource model. The process model realises the partial order of business processes while the organisation model provides the structure of the resources to be utilised. In this paper, we propose a CPN-based framework for modelling organisational functioning units. The models are developed independent of the process layer. Maintaining the flexibility and scalability, the model, hence, is capable to be modified without altering the process model.
