Workflow execution is usually accomplished by a central enactment
engine that interprets a process definition and dispatches activities as specified
in the definition. In practice, this type of workflow execution is successfully
automated for such processes that involve routine activities. However, today’s
business processes don’t seem to be manageable, compared to the traditional
workflows. Particularly, with explosion of e-business, the processes sometimes
span multiple companies, and interoperability among distributed processcentric
systems has become an important issue. Therefore, the conventional
execution framework may not effectively handle the complicated business processes
for collaboration any more. In this article, we deliberate on realizing the
vision of Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) for workflow systems and make
an effort to build up a concrete process model reflecting on whole life cycle of
workflow processes. The process model will improve interchangeability and
portability of workflow processes, which requires that the executable components
be generated from the model regardless of the variety of run-time architecture.
