    Abstract = {Todays information systems do not support adaptive workflow: either the information system abstracts from the workflow processes at hand and focuses on the management of data and the execution of individual tasks via applications or the workflow is supported by the information system but it is hard to handle changes. This paper addresses this problem by classifying the types of changes. Based on this classification, issues such as syntactic/semantic correctness, case transfer, and management information are discussed. It turns out that the trade-off between flexibility and support raises challenging questions. Only some of these questions are answered in this paper, most of them require further research. Since the success of the next generation of workflow management systems depends on the ability to support adaptive workflow, it is important to provide answers for the questions raised in this paper.},

It turns out that the trade-off between flexibility and support raises challenging questions. Some of these questions can be answered using advanced inheritance notions. This paper provides four inheritance-preserving transformation rules which can be used to avoid the typical problems related to change.},

    Abstract = {Workflow management technology promises a flexible solution for business-process support facilitating the easy creation of new business processes and modification of existing processes. Unfortunately, todays workflow products have no support for workflow verification. Errors made at design-time are not detected and result in very costly failures at run-time. This paper presents the verification tool Woflan. Woflan analyzes workflow process definitions downloaded from commercial workflow products using state-of-the-art Petri-net-based analysis techniques. This paper describes the functionality of Woflan emphasizing new diagnostics to locate the source of a design error. Based on a case study (involving twenty groups of students designing a complex workflow process), these new diagnostics have been evaluated and the results have been used to develop a method to guide the user of Woflan in finding and correcting errors in the design of workflows.},
