Verifying Petri Net-Based Process Models using Automated Planning (04b Atto di convegno in volume)

Agostinelli Simone, Maggi Fabrizio Maria, Marrella Andrea, Mecella Massimo

The identification of control-flow errors in business processes (BPs) at design time is one of the most relevant tasks of the early phases of the Business Process Management (BPM) lifecycle, named BP verification. In this paper, starting from a Petri net-based representation of a BP model, we show how instances of the verification problem can be represented as planning problems in PDDL (Planning Domain Definition Language) for which planners can find a correct solution in a finite amount of time. If verification problems are converted into planning problems, one can seamlessly leverage the best performing automated planners, with advantages in terms of versatility and customization.
