Businesses and other organizations increasingly rely on business process management, and a data-centric approach to workflow has emerged that are centered on “artifacts”. This approach introduced by IBM focuses on data records, known as artifacts, that correspond to key business relevant objects, and that flow through a business process specified by a series of web services. Our researches carry on this approach, and create a prototype for artifact-centric business process management systems, named A-Stein. In this paper, the architecture of A-Stein is introduced firstly, and then the main portions in it are specified respectively, such as Artiflow Manager, Process Creator and Process Detector. Finally, a living example of restaurant business process is designed and running on this system.
