Design, Modelling and Analysis of a Workflow Reconfiguration

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Manuel Mazzara, Dr Anirban Bhattacharyya



This paper describes a case study involving interference between application activities and reconfiguration activities in an office workflow. We state the requirements on a system implementing the workflow and its reconfiguration, and describe the system's design in BPMN. We then use an asynchronous pi-calculus and Web-pi to model the design and to verify whether or not it will meet the requirements. In the process, we evaluate the formalisms for their suitability for the modelling and analysis of dynamic reconfiguration of dependable systems.
