A Database-oriented Workflow Scheduler with Historical Data and Resource Substitution Possibilities

Tibor Dulai, Ágnes Werner-Stark

Abstract

This paper presents the database of a novel workflow scheduler that is able to handle resource substitution and takes into account historical data. The generated schedule can be optimized either in time or cost. The scheduler enables a resource substitution in case of an immediate event or when cost- or time-efficiency-related reasons necessitates it. The underlying database is able to handle complex workflows, represents the fleet of various resources and supports data mining from the data of the logged execution of the schedule in order to further improving the schedule. The database and the scheduler is a part of a complex project which schedules workflows described in XPDL by an agent system taking into account the real-time events and historical data served by process mining. Our scheduler system is intended to be applied both in business and industrial processes.
