An Ontology-Based Workflow Model Supporting Collaborative Product Development
Collaborative product development (CPD) is a dynamic collaborative process. A workflow model supporting CPD can provide a powerful and orderly workflow management for modern product development. This paper studies the requirements of CPD towards the workflow model, establishes a workflow metamodel supporting CPD process, proposes an idea of ontology-based workflow modeling and builds the workflow ontology model, which will strongly support interactive manipulation between the workflow management systems of collaborative product development.
