DESCRIPTION OF WORKFLOW PATTERNS BASED ON P/T NETS

Guofu Zhou, Yanxiang He, Zhoumin Du

Abstract

Through comparing and analyzing Aalst’s workflow patterns, we model these patterns with P/T nets without additional elements. Based on these models, the number of Aalst’s patterns can be reduced significatively. Moreover, the synchronic distance is also presented to specify workflow patterns.
