The objective of this research is to evaluate the Process Specification Language (PSL) and a simulation access language (SimAL) with application to project and workflow management. The research tasks include:
· to evaluate the potential of the Process Specification Language (PSL) for the planning and modeling activities in a project
· to evaluate the adequacy of the Process Specification Language (PSL) as an interchange definition language to support process-oriented simulation
· to evaluate the applicability of SimAL, a simulation query language, for practical engineering problems
· to develop an integration framework using PSL and SimAL for process-oriented simulation
Our long term goal is to develop a distributed
network-based framework to integrate process specification and modeling and
virtual simulations of project activities.
