In this paper, the authors extend their results concerning the layered architecture for modeling workflows in Mobile Ad-Hoc NETworks (MANETs) using algebraic higher order nets. MANETs are networks of mobile devices that communicate with each other via wireless links without relying on an underlying infrastructure. Workflows in MANETs can be adequately modeled using a layered architecture, where the overall workflow, the team members' activities and the mobility issues are separated into three different layers, namely the workflow layer, the mobility layer and the team layer.
