Generic Algorithms for Consistency Checking of Mutual-Exclusion and Binding Constraints in a Business Process Context
In this paper, the authors present generic algorithms to ensure the consistency of mutual-exclusion and binding constraints in a business process context. They repeatedly identified the need for such generic algorithms in their real-world projects. Thus, the algorithms are a result of the experiences they gained in analyzing, designing, and implementing a number of corresponding software systems and tools. In particular, these algorithms check corresponding consistency requirements to prevent constraint conflicts and to ensure the design-time and runtime compliance of a process-related Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) model.
