Abstract

Product Based Workflow Design (PBWD) is a revolutionary and successful new approach to workflow process support. A description of the product, the Product Data Model (PDM), is central in this approach. While other research so far has focused on deriving a process model from the PDM, this paper presents a way to directly execute the PDM, leading to a more dynamic and flexible support for the workflow process. Based on the information available for a case the next step to be performed is determined using a strategy of e.g. lowest cost or shortest processing time. A prototype implementing these execution recommendations is presented.
