A Framework for Unifying Problem-Solving Knowledge and Workflow Modeling

Juan Vidal, Manuel Lama, Alberto Bugarin

Usually a workflow is described from its control structure and its participants but without taking into account the knowledge used to execute it. This paper outlines a new framework for workflows specification which extends the Unified Problem-solving Method description Language and approaches workflows design from a knowledge perspective. Within this framework, the resources and the control flows that define the traditional workflow framework are defined as knowledge components and are enriched with a knowledge dimension that deals with the definition of the knowledge that is used in its modeling, resource assignments and execution.
