Integrated Approach for Database and Workflow Design

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

The best practice in information system development is to model the business processes that have to be supported and the database of the information system separately. This is inefficient because they are closely related. In this project, we develop a framework in which it is possible to derive one from the other. To this end we introduce a special class of Petri nets, called Jackson nets, to model the business processes, and a document type, called Jackson types, to model the database.
