Abstract: Workflow management Technology has been applied in many enterprise information systems. Business processes provide a means of coordinating interaction between workers and organization in a structured way. However, traditional information systems struggle with requirement to provide flexibility due to the dynamic nature of the modern business environment. Accordingly, Adaptive Process Management Systems (PMSs) have emerged that provide some flexibility by enabling dynamic process change during run time. There are various ways in which flexibility can be achieved. One of these kinds of flexibility is flexibility by underspecification. This kind of flexibility is not supported (except YAWL) by current products. In addition, all approaches that currently exist not consider the context of execution of business process management. In this paper we propose an approach that supports flexibility by underspecification and consider context of the business process execution in runtime environment . The main idea is to consider activities as independent part of process. Each activity is encapsulated in an entity (artifact). The decision of which activity (module, component) will be executed depends on context environment and conditions execution. We will reason about the decision taken. We are motivated by make business processes easy to put together from reusable components and to reason on context execution. (More)
