State chart: A Visual Language for Workflow Specification

Wendy Wenhui Zhang, Theresa Beaubouef, and Huilin Ye

Abstract—The need for workflow management has become readily apparent in recent years, and in order to manage various business workflow features, a conceptual modeling or specification of workflow is paramount. State chart is a visual language for software requirement specification that has been widely used due to its compactness, expressiveness, compositionality, and modularity. This paper presents a tutorial of the State chart visual language and how it can be used for workflow specification.

Index Terms—State chart, workflow.
