Workflow Simulation Modeling Based on Discrete Event Approach
In order to apply simulation to analysis, evaluation and optimization of the workflow performances, workflow process model for simulation is firstly formalized. Then workflow simulation model is bulit based on discrete event approach. Finally the supporting software tool system has been developed which shows feasibility of the proposed method.
