Abstract: We study concurrent processes modelled as workflow Petri nets extended with resource constraints. We define a behavioural correctness criterion called soundness: given a sufficient initial number of resources, all cases in the net are guaranteed to terminate successfully, no matter which schedule is used. We give a necessary and sufficient condition for soundness and an algorithm that checks it.
Keywords: Petri nets; concurrency; workflow; resources; verification.
