Towards an Implementation of Data and Resource Patterns in Constraint-based Process Models

Abstract

A Process-Aware Information System (PAIS) is a system that executes processes involving people, applications, and data on the basis of process models. Two representations for processes can be distinguished: procedural models prescribe exactly the execution order of process steps. Declarative process models allow flexible process executions that are restricted by constraints. Especially in application areas of knowledge driven processes, this flexibility is required. Foundations of declarative approaches have been extensively discussed in research. From a practitioner’s point of view, however, an open question still remains: is it possible to implement established functionality in contemporary declarative PAIS, especially data and resource handling? In this paper, we tackle this open research question by introducing the declarative process modelling and execution framework DPIL that covers resource and data modelling. Expressiveness and functionality of the framework are evaluated by means of the well-known Workflow Data and Resource Patterns.
