Workflow management is a core component of modern enterprise information technology infrastructure that automates the execution of critical business processes. Since enterprise transformation typically introduces changes to the corresponding business processes, it is important for modern workflow management systems to provide effective support for seamless incorporation of these changes. In this paper, we examine a collection of selected workflow concepts and techniques that are significant for…

Interpreting Overlaps in Business Process Mapping via Organisational Soft Knowledge Flows
SNA diagrams are examined in order to implement executable models and potentially enable automated analysis of workflows and a means of converting SNA data to Business Process workflows is presented and an example provided.
The high level prototype development with the emphasis on the architectural design of SDeX is discussed, in which automation features are incorporated in the design in which workflow system and intelligent agents are integrated, and the facilitation of cloud environment is empowered to further support the automation.
Towards A Conceptualization Of Architectural Support For Enterprise Transformation
Comparing the demand by ETM and the supply by EAM shows that EAM in general provides valuable inputs to the ETM activities but shows weaknesses when it comes to information about individual actors or environmental information.
Supply chain transformation based on business process management
An integrated platform and a comprehensive methodology IBM Supply Chain Process Modeler (SCPM) for process-centric supply chain transformation and the seamless integration of business process management tool and process execution IT system are presented.

An overview of workflow management: From process modeling to workflow automation infrastructure
This paper provides a high-level overview of the current workflow management methodologies and software products and discusses how distributed object management and customized transaction management can support further advances in the commercial state of the art in this area.
Workflow mining: A survey of issues and approaches
Dynamic Routing and Operational Controls in Workflow Management Systems
The framework consists of three techniques: workflow control tables, sequence constraints, and event-based workflow management rules that are applied to the case of consumer loan management and compared with other approaches based on static routing.
Workflow Management: Models, Methods, and Systems
This book provides a basic overview of workflow terminology and organization, as well as detailed coverage of workflow modeling with Petri nets, to provide a comprehensive introduction to workflow management.
A Meta Level Architecture for Workflow Management
This work proposes a meta level architecture for WFMSs providing an explicit and dynamic meta model that can do intelligent failure handling, but can also support the workflow modelling and execution processes.
