Abstract

Workflow at its simplest is the movement of documents or tasks through a work process with automation for achieving certain goals. Many efforts have been spent by both industry and academia in attempting to define a common representation of a business process based on the concept of workflow. In 2005, Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is a business process language developed by OMG & WfMC which satisfies the goal. However, BPMN supports only the concepts & notations for modeling. Several real concerns for business purposes are out of scope of BPMN. Besides, it needs many efforts for the implementations of a BPMN environment. Here we present one simple approach to construct a Business Process Management System, BPMS, based on BPMN. In our approach, we developed a conceptual workflow model, BPMN*, a BPMN with some constraints, for the specification of a BPMs. The BPMN* specification is then translated into another specification, based on Cooperative Agentflow Process LANguage (CA-PLAN) and executable in a WFMS, Agentflow, developed in our laboratory. We have developed a specification tool for BPMN*. In the future, we will examine the functions of the tools in Agentflow based on BPMN* and upgrade the related feature for necessity
