The current researches on time constraints in workflow mainly focus on time-relevant process modeling and efficiency analysis. Through modifying the WfMC's basic process definition meta-model, This work introduces time into workflow as a dimension, and presents a concept temporal workflow. Then, some primary elements in workflow are formalized, and an example is given to show the application of temporal information and temporal data calculation in workflow system.
