The integration of Planning and Scheduling (P&S) and Business Process Management (BPM) is a significant challenge for enterprise environments. This paper presents a transformation from a Business Process Model diagram stored in XPDL format, into a hierarchical extension of the PDDL planning language, using the concept of workflow patterns as base of the translation process. The proposed architecture is evaluated within a specific teamwork project management scenario: the allocation of human resources and web services for the cooperative development of online courses in an e-learning center.
