According to Definitions 4.1-4.2, we obtain the cross-organization workflow net,
W CW , of this medical diagnosis scenario as shown in Fig. 3.

Behavior Description of Cross-Organization Workflow with
Synchronous Interaction Pattern
In this section, we analyze the behavior description of cross-organization workflow
with synchronous interaction pattern. Our method is laid on the synchronized shuffle
of Petri net languages, which is first introduced by Latteux . Before rendering our
approach, we will first review some of the basics on Petri net language and some
limitations of our work.
In this paper, we focus on a kind of bounded Petri net, whose language is proved to
be regular languages , thereby some commonly used language operators are re-
viewed as: connection operator “
and parallel operator “//”. Please refer to - for more detailed introduction.
According to the theory of Petri net languages , four different types of lan-
guages named L-type, G-type, T-type and P-type are defined based on the difference
of their terminal markings. Depending on the choice of transition labeling (free,
”, choice operator “
”, Kleen-closure operator “
free, arbitrary), each type is divided into three classes. In this paper, we use the free
