Workflow management systems are widely adopted for implementing business processes. Archival workflow is a precise representation of the archival process, reflecting the formal coordination mechanisms between archival activities and manual processes with respect to the specific requirements of the local governing body. Understanding key performance indicators of archival processes is considered as one of the crucial factors for the government organizations. Process Simulation enables detailed analysis of such performance indicators without actually deploying the processes. In this paper, we analyze a number of resource allocation strategies for the existing workflow model from Macau Historical Archives using Colored Petri Nets models. Based on these models, the strengths and the weaknesses of each resource assignment schemes are evaluated against a number of performance indicators.
