An Analysis of Windows Workflow's Control-Flow Expressiveness
Found in: Web Services, European Conference on
By Marco Zapletal, Wil M.P. van der Aalst, Nick Russell, Philipp Liegl, Hannes Werthner
Issue Date:November 2009
pp. 200-209
The Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) has been introduced as part of the .NET framework as a means of creating workflow-centric applications. Its intended field of application is broad, ranging from fat-client applications and web applications to enterprise...
DECLARE: Full Support for Loosely-Structured Processes
Found in: Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Conference, IEEE International
By Maja Pesic, Helen Schonenberg, Wil M.P. van der Aalst
Issue Date:October 2007
pp. 287
Traditional Workflow Management Systems (WFMSs) are not flexible enough to support loosely-structured pro- cesses. Furthermore, flexibility in contemporary WFMSs usually comes at a certain cost, such as lack of support for users, lack of methods for model ...
Process Mining Put into Context
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Wil M.P. van der Aalst,Schahram Dustdar
Issue Date:January 2012
pp. 82-86
Process mining techniques help organizations discover and analyze business processes based on raw event data. The recently released
Techniques for a Posteriori Analysis of Declarative Processes
Found in: 2012 16th IEEE International Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Conference (EDOC 2012)
By Andrea Burattin,Fabrizio M. Maggi,Wil M.P. van der Aalst,Alessandro Sperduti
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 41-50
The increasing availability of event data recorded by information systems, electronic devices, web services and sensor networks provides detailed information about the actual processes in systems and organizations. Process mining techniques can use such ev...
Web Service Composition Languages: Old Wine in New Bottles?
Found in: EUROMICRO Conference
By Wil M.P. van der Aalst, Marlon Dumas, Arthur H.M. ter Hofstede
Issue Date:September 2003
pp. 298
Recently, several languages for web service composition have emerged (e.g., BPEL4WS and WSCI). The goal of these languages is to glue web services together in a process-oriented way. For this purpose, these languages typically borrow concepts from workflow...
From BPMN Process Models to BPEL Web Services
Found in: Web Services, IEEE International Conference on
By Chun Ouyang, Marlon Dumas, Arthur H.M. ter Hofstede, Wil M.P. van der Aalst
Issue Date:September 2006
pp. 285-292
The Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) is a graph-oriented language in which control and action nodes can be connected almost arbitrarily. It is supported by various modelling tools but so far no systems can directly execute BPMN models. The Busine...
Supporting Flexible Processes with Adaptive Work?ow and Case Handling
Found in: Enabling Technologies, IEEE International Workshops on
By Christian W. Guenther, Manfred Reichert, Wil M.P. van der Aalst
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 229-234
Workflow management technology has profoundly transformed the way complex tasks are being handled in modern, large-scale organizations. However, it is mostly those systems' inherent lack of flexibility that hinders their broad acceptance, and that is perce...
Model-Based Development and Testing of Process-Aware Information Systems
Found in: Advances in System Testing and Validation Lifecycle, International Conference on
By Ronny S. Mans, Wil M.P. van der Aalst, Nick C. Russell, Piet J.M. Bakker, Arnold J. Moleman
Issue Date:September 2009
pp. 129-134
The development of Process-Aware Information Systems (PAISs) heavily relies on the notion of software configuration rather than classical software development approaches based on coding. To date, there is no accepted development strategy for the configurat...
