In order to address complex application environments workflow modeling, using Petri nets as a workflow modeling tool, Petri nets based on multi-node cycle workflow model the complexity analysis. The results show that when the number of nodes in the workflow model is small, it can be addressed by increasing the monitoring place circulation problems and improve the complex environment of the efficiency of workflow modeling.
