A workflow methodology is required to analyze business logic and model workflow components. Current studies handle business process modeling and workflow modeling in an independent manner, making it hard to analyze the information system and organization requirements while modeling business logic. Moreover, current methodologies also lack support for modeling complex dynamic processes in adaptive workflows. In this chapter, a methodology is proposed to unify business process modeling and workflow automation. The information system and organization perspectives of workflow are identified in each development phase. An analysis of the domain and an object notation in the methodology can help to build a stable system.
