Abstract: Logistics processes, where RFID technologies are applied to improve process efficiency and flexible organisation of collaboration is required in the foreground, pose challenges to process modelling, analysis and design in business process management. To meet these challenges, we propose in this paper an integrated approach which bundles XSLT nets, a novel variant of high-level Petri nets to model RFID-based logistics processes and to enable their automatic execution, as well as social networking coordinated by community processes to support the interconnection and web-based collaboration of logistics partners. The utility of the approach is demonstrated in two modelling use cases. We also present a general architecture framework of process-oriented social information systems.
