Abstract

Many projects are characterized by their flexibility and high number of changes before a definitive solution is implemented. In these scenarios, the people involved may change, as may deadlines, assignments and roles. Traditional workflow systems don’t handle dynamic scenarios well, as they are centralized and pre-defined at the start of the project. To address these problems, we propose an agent-based approach to dynamic workflow management, where participants may join or leave and roles may change depending on the situation.
