Abstract

Current workflow management systems require fundamental enhancements to their process models and architectures to support dynamic business processes in fast-changing environments. In particular, late-binding mechanisms need to be introduced into the routing and decision steps in workflow process definitions to optimise high-level objectives based on business metrics. In this paper, we introduce a new type of node - choice node - to be used in place of route nodes when needed and the required framework for performing dynamic path selection, resource allocation and work queue prioritisation.
