Specifying Flexible Human Behavior in Interaction-Intensive Process Environments

Dorn, C., Osterweil, L.J., Dustdar, S., (2014) Specifying Flexible Human Behavior in Interaction-Intensive Process Environments, In Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2014), Sep 2014, Eindhoven, Springer LNCS

Abstract: Fast changing business environments characterized by unpredictable
variations call for flexible process-aware systems. The BPM community addressed this challenge through various approaches but little focus has been on how to specify (respectively constrain) flexible human involvement: how human pro-cess participants may collaborate on a task, how they may obtain a joint decision that drives the process, or how they may communicate out-of-band for clarifying task-vital information. Experience has shown that pure process languages are not necessarily the most appropriate technique for specifying such flexible behavior. Hence selecting appropriate modeling languages and strategies needs thorough investigation. To this end, this paper juxtaposes the capabilities of representa-tive human-centric specification languages hADL and Little-JIL and demonstrate their joint applicability for modeling interaction-intensive processes

Flexible Social Workflows: Collaborations as Human Architecture

Dorn C., Taylor R.N., Dustdar S. (2012). Flexible Social Workflows: Collaborations as Human Architecture. IEEE Internet Computing, vol.16 no.2, pp.72-77, IEEE Computer Society, http://doi.ieeecomputersociety.org/10.1109/MIC.2012.33,

Abstract: Human process involvement has gained momentum in recent years, but the proposed mechanisms can’t efficiently adapt Web-scale collaborative workflows. Here, the authors describe collaborative problem solving and its integration with process-support systems as an architecture comprising human components and connectors. This modeling of coordination and execution roles enables reasoning on workflow flexibility and appropriate adaptation actions.
