An agent-based workflow management system (WfMS)


Archway 2


In this talk, we describe the architecture of an agent-based workflow management system (WfMS) which uses Coloured Petri nets as its process definition formalism. The agent framework which is open and flexible is used to create an adaptive and distributed WfMS where a new process model can be dynamically incorporated. In this system, the process model as well as various components of the system can be distributed across the network.
