Possibilistic Interorganizational Workflow Net for the Recovery Problem Concerning Communication Failures

Leiliane Pereira de Rezende, Stéphane Julia, Janette Cardoso

Abstract

In this paper, an approach based on interorganizational WorkFlow nets and on possibilistic Petri nets is proposed to deal with communication failures in business processes. Routing patterns and communication protocols existing in business processes are modeled by interorganizational WorkFlow nets. Possibilistic Petri nets with uncertainty on the marking and on the transition firing are considered to express in a more realistic way the uncertainty attached to communication failures. Combining both formalisms, a kind of possibilistic interorganizational WorkFlow net is obtained. An example of communication failure at a process monitoring level that precedes the presentation of a paper at a conference is presented.
