Dflow workflow management system

Dengi, C
Neftci, S
Process specification, automatic recovery: concurrency control and heterogeneity among processing entities are known problems of workflow management systems. Dflow provides a workflow specification language which combines the expressive power of a structural programming language with the recovery capabilities of transaction systems. Dflow tries to solve the problems of automatic recovery in its model and the problems of concurrency control and heterogeneity in its architecture.

A Control System Architecture for Control of Non-Affine in Control, Open-Loop Unstable Underactuated Systems
Marangoz, Alp; Kutay, Ali Türker (2017-07-25)
In this paper, a control system architecture for control of non-affine in control, open-loop unstable underactuated system is discussed. Passivization of the unactuated (internal) system dynamics achieved through perturbation of trajectories of the actuated states, which are calculated through adaptive dynamic inversion technique, based on Tikhonov's theorem. Performance of the controller is shown through simulation of two open-loop unstable and locally uncontrollable example problems.
A shared-medium communication architecture for distributed discrete event systems
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Zaddach, J. (2007-06-29)
Recently, several efficient supervisor synthesis approaches for distributed discrete event systems (DES) have been established. In this paper, the implementation of such supervisors on interacting distributed programmable logic controllers (PLCs) on a network is considered for the hierarchical and decentralized control approach elaborated in our previous work. A communication model that captures the controller behavior relevant for communication is developed, and a network architecture together with a sched...
Hierarchical and decentralized multitasking control of discrete event systems
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Cury, José E. R. (2007-12-01)
In this paper, a hierarchical and decentralized approach for composite discrete-event systems (DES) that have to fulfill multiple tasks is elaborated. Colored marking generators that can distinguish classes of tasks are used as the system model, and a colored abstraction procedure as well as sufficient conditions for nonblocking and hierarchically consistent control are developed. It is shown that the computational complexity for supervisor computation is reduced. A flexible manufacturing system example dem...
Data integration over horizontally partitioned databases in service-oriented data grids
Sunercan, Hatice Kevser Sönmez; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Alpdemir, Mahmut Nedim; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
Information integration over distributed and heterogeneous resources has been challenging in many terms: coping with various kinds of heterogeneity including data model, platform, access interfaces; coping with various forms of data distribution and maintenance policies, scalability, performance, security and trust, reliability and resilience, legal issues etc. It is obvious that each of these dimensions deserves a separate thread of research efforts. One particular challenge among the ones listed above tha...
Variable connectors in component oriented development
Çetinkaya, Anıl; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2017)
Variability is incorporated in component oriented software development especially in the connectors besides components, for efficient configuration of software products in this thesis. Components have been regarded as the main building blocks in the development of software, especially in component based approaches. Connectors, however, were also part of the solution but with not much of a responsibility when compared to components. When considered in a holistic approach to yield executable code starting wit...
