CORVETTE : a Cooperative Workflow Development Experiment

Abstract : Workflow systems are now successfully used in numerous administrative and production applications. Following this success, a lot of research has been launched to keep workflow technology supporting a larger range of applications. This paper reports on the Corvette project, an experience in developing a cooperative workflow system by integrating a commercial workflow system developed by Hitachi Ltd. with a cooperation technology developed by INRIA. By cooperative workflow system, we mean a workflow system that has the capability to manage cooperative behaviours characteristic of creative applications, typically co-design and co-engineering processes, where interactions between activities are more subtle than in traditional applications. More precisely, Corvette was targeted to support coordination processes of a virtual team working over Internet.
