YAWL (Yet Another Workflow Language) is a workflow language / workflow management system based on Petri nets and a rigorous analysis of existing workflow management systems and workflow languages. Unlike traditional systems and (high-level) Petri nets it provides direct support for most of the workflow patterns. YAWL supports the control-flow perspective and the data perspective and is based on a web-based infrastructure.
YAWL is a joint effort of Queensland University of Technology and Eindhoven University of Technology.
