newYAWL : Towards Workflow 2.0
Russell, Nick C. & ter Hofstede, Arthur H. M. (2009) newYAWL : Towards Workflow 2.0. Lecture Notes in Computer Science : Transactions on Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency II, 5460, pp. 79-97.
The field of workflow technology has burgeoned in recent years providing a variety of means of automating business processes. It is a great source of opportunity for organisations seeking to streamline and optimise their operations. Despite these advantages however, the current generation of workflow technologies are subject to a variety of criticisms, in terms of their restricted view of what comprises a business process, their imprecise definition and their general inflexibility. As a remedy to these potential difficulties, in this paper we propose a series of development goals for the next generation of workflow technology. We also present newYAWL, a formally defined, multi-perspective reference language for workflow systems.
