Soundness Analysis of T-Restricted Interorganizational Logical Workflow Nets

Wei Liu, Yuyue Du and Haichun Sun

Interorganizational Logical Workflow Nets (ILWN) can efficiently model cooperative systems based on Petri nets, workflow techniques and temporal logic. But soundness of arbitrary ILWNs is hard to decide. This study defines the concept of T-restricted Logical Workflow Nets (LWN) and proposes an important subclass of ILWNs composed of n T-restricted LWNs: T-restricted ILWNs. The sufficient and necessary conditions of T-restricted ILWNs preserving soundness are obtained and the rigorous analysis approach is presented based on their static net structures only. Moreover, two approaches of combining n T-restricted LWNs into one T-restricted ILWN are given. The concepts and techniques proposed in this study are illustrated with a useful example of an auto gas station system.
