Colloquium TU/E 2012

A Decade of Research on Fluid Processes: Beyond Rigidity in Business Process Support

Manfred Reichert

Colloquium Talk, TU Eindhoven, The Netherlands; 25 Sep 2012

This talk reports on a fundamental class of computerized processes called "fluid" processes. In particular, the engineering and use of fluid processes is indistinguishable. Instead, they are continually adapted and reformed to fit the actual needs and constraints of the situation at hand and to fulfill the overall goals of the involved actors in the best possible way. The talk will present a detailed review of the challenges and techniques that exist for the flexible support of fluid processes. It will further give insights into their nature, discuss fundamental challenges, summarize enabling technologies, and refer to advanced applications.
