Binary Collaboration Models related to Manual Activities

Giorgio Bruno

Abstract

The operational implications of manual activities in business processes lead to an interesting case study on binary collaborations in which situations of clashing interactions appear. This paper analyzes three situations involving manual activities and proposes three collaboration patterns to deal with them. These patterns are presented by means of a notation based on colored Petri nets in which most transitions are related to interactions. A solution to the problem of clashing interactions is illustrated as well.
