The basic work process of virtual enterprise was extracted by analyzing the general process of the organization and operation of virtual enterprise in this paper. The method of large-scale workflow network be decomposed into small-scale workflow network was put forward through the introduction of SWF-net theory. Taking the collaborative product design and manufacturing in manufacturing virtual enterprise as an example, the workflow network was modeled and decomposed by using of workflow analysis method based on SWF-net, and the soundness of sub-workflow networks and joint workflow network were analyzed. This workflow analysis method provides a solution for the analysis of large-scale virtual enterprise workflow, which has great theoretical and practical significance.
