Traditional approaches to designing business processes are often inadequate for complicated, distributed, and collaborated settings. However since network technologies have become widespread, an increasing number of business processes exhibit these properties. Therefore a new approach is needed. To this end, we describe the motivation, conceptualization, and analysis of a composition-oriented business process design method. The key advance of our method is that it uses process algebra pi-calculus as its formal basis and builds a complex process by composing simple structured process control modules to reduce the complexity of business process design as well as let several designers collaborate the design of a complex process. To make business process more clear, we also provide way of separating exception processing logic from normal process control logic and provide scooping mechanisms to minimize the detrimental effects of unplanned contingencies by ways of composition
