Ontology-extended component-based workflows: A framework for constructing complex workflows from semantically heterogeneous software components
Drug Information Services
Virtually all areas of human endeavor involve workflows -that is, coordinated execution of multiple tasks. In practice, this requires the assembly of complex workflows from semantically heterogeneous components. In this paper, we develop ontology-extended workflow components and semantically consistent methods for assembling such components into complex ontology-extended component-based work-flows. The result is a sound theoretical framework for assembly of semantically well-formed workflows from semantically heterogeneous components. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2005.
