The instance-aspect oriented workflow management system is to vertically combine multiple workflow activity instances and submit them for execution as a whole according to some batch or combination logics. It is inspired by the idea of aspect-oriented programming methodology and aims at improving the execution efficiency of business processes. Traditional workflow systems do not support workflow model with instance aspects. In our previous work, we have studied workflow instance modeling technology. This paper makes a research on the principles, methods and implementation of a workflow visual GUI tool for modeling instance aspects in workflow. It is based on an open source GUI tool, Together Workflow Editor, and makes some expansion in instance aspect functionality.
