Conditional Workflow Management: A Survey and Analysis
Workflows form the essential part of the process execution both in a single machine and in distributed environments. Although providing conditional structures is not mandatory for a workflow management system, support for conditional workflows is very important in terms of error handling, flexibility and robustness. Several of the existing workflow management systems already support conditional structures via use of different constructs. In this paper, we study the most widely used workflow management systems and their support for conditional structures such as if, switch, and while. We compare implementation of common conditional structures using each of these workflow management systems via case studies, and discuss capabilities of each system.
