Since 1995 are doing research on workflow management. We are interested in models, methods and tools for the modeling and analysis of
workflows. We often use Petri nets as a theoretical basis. Some research topics we
have worked on are:
- Verification of workflows (efficient techniques to find logical errors in a workflow design and guidelines to help the designer in correcting
- The relation between Business Process Reengineering and workflow management.
- Improving the performance of a workflow (techniques to semi-automatically improve
throughput times and service
- The relation between logistic concepts and workflow management (e.g. extending the bill-of-material for
- Ad-hoc/adaptive workflow (how to customize a workflow for specific cases).
- Workflow patterns and new paradigms for modeling and enacting workflows
- Interorganizational workflows, i.e., workflows such as trade procedures
crossing organizational boundaries.
- XRL/flower, i.e., an XML-based workflow language
whose semantics is expressed in terms of Petri nets.
Yet Another Workflow Language
- Workflow Mining (now commonly referred to as process mining): How to discover process
models from event logs.
- Inheritance issues in the context of workflow management.
- Simulation and gaming of workflows.
