Using Resources as Synchronizers to Manage Mobile Process Adaptation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Process management in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) has to deal with different types of tasks and resources. Teams can be formed with specific goals, such as recognition of a damaged area for disaster assessment, where each member of a team is assigned some task to be performed according to some policy. However, in real situations, it is possible that task assignments and policies have to be revised due to different causes. In addition to typical causes for dynamic changes in adaptive workflows, mobility introduces some specific problems, e.g., the need for new connectivity-maintaining tasks, or reassignment of tasks originally for members who have become unreachable, or who have no sufficient resources to complete the original plan.
