An Agent-Based Workflow Management System

Krzysztof Palacz and Dan C. Marinescu

In this paper we discuss the architecture of an agentbased workflow management system built around the Bond agent framework. We address the problem of mapping a workflow description into the Blueprint language used for agent description. Bond agents can be modified dynamically by changing the data structure controlling the scheduling of actions in the multiplane state machine model of the agent. The modified blueprints can be generated after the surgery of an agent. From the modified blueprint we can create the modified workflow description and complete the cycle supporting dynamic workflows.
