A Grid Workflow Dynamic Process Models Based on Petri Net

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 162)


This paper firstly introduces the commonly used modeling methods of traditional workflow and commonly used process models of the grid workflow, in which it focuses on the introduction of the Petri Net model. It provides the WF-Net model of the grid workflow based on the basic Petri Net. In order to be able to solve the scale problem, the dynamic problem and the choice problem in the applications of the grid, it introduces the idea of the high-level Petri Net into the WF-Net model, proposes the modeling workflow net of NEW WF-Net in the dynamic process of the grid workflow, and expatiates on the related properties and characteristics of the NEW WF-Net.
