Towards an Intelligent Workflow Designer Based on The Reuse of Workflow Patterns
In order to perform Process-Aware Information Systems the authors need sophisticated methods and concepts for designing and modeling processes. Recently, research on workflow patterns has emerged in order to increase the reuse of recurring workflow structures. However, current workflow modeling tools do not provide functionalities that enable users to define, query, and reuse workflow patterns properly. In this paper, they gather a suite for both process modeling and normalization based on workflow patterns reuse. This suite must be used in the extension of some workflow design tool (e.g., Intalio, Event Process Chain - EPC). The suite comprises components for the designing of processes from both legacy systems and user process.
