Business process modelling is the process of visualising business processes in order to understand, improve and/or enact these processes in a particular computing environment. Furthermore, it is envisaged that environments that adopt the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) model of computing are increasingly becoming the de facto environment for executing business processes represented by their visual models. However, it is not possible to use application domain specific web or grid services to enact or execute business processes without translating them into executable programmes. This suggests the need for a generic approach to perform these translations in a structured manner. This research is an attempt to bridge the gap between business process models and service-oriented environments with reference to RAD (Role Activity Diagramming) business process models and grid-aware service-oriented environments.
