WorMS- A Framework to Support Workflows in M&S

In: Proceedings of the 2011 Winter Simulation Conference, ed. by S. Jain and R. R. Creasey and J. Himmelspach and K. P. White and M. Fu,, Piscataway, New Jersey, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Workflows are a promising mean to increase the quality of modeling and simulation (M&S) products such as studies and models. In exploiting workflows for M&S, requirements arise that need to be reflected in the structure and components of a workflow supporting framework, such as WORMS (WORkflows for Modeling and Simulation). In WORMS, we adapt concepts of business process modeling and scientific workflows. Particular attention is given to extensibility and flexibility which is supported by a plug-in based design and by selecting workflow nets as intermediate representation for workflows. The first application of WORMS has been realized for the modeling and simulation framework JAMES II. A small case-study illuminates the role of components and their interplay during evaluating a cell biological model.
