Net Theory and Workflow Models
- Giorgio De MichelisAffiliated withDISCO, University of Milano “Bicocca”
they allow to give to workflow models a univocal non ambiguous semantics;
they have an easy to read graphical representation;
they may support a hierarchy of abstraction levels;
they are executable models, well suited for both simulation and software specifcation.
they are too rigid since, by imposing an explicit flow of actions, they hinder users in overcoming breakdowns;
they are too complicated, since their design requires a professional expert and cannot be performed by users themselves.
they should be easily modifiable, supporting both the automatic verification of change correctness and safe change enactment on the ongoing instances ;
they should support exception handling, allowing users to follow exceptional paths on the basis of the policy of their organization, without making models too complicated;
they should offer multiple diverse views of the workflow to their diverse users (perfomers, managers, customers, designers).
