 +===== Abstract =====
 +A new approach to workflow process (re)design is the use of Product Based
 +Workflow Design (PBWD) theory. This theory takes the workflow product as the central
 +concept (instead of the workflow process) and provides a product data model of the structure
 +of information processing in the workflow process. In this paper we introduce a prototype
 +for applying PBWD constructed using CPN Tools. The goal of this prototype is to provide
 +a tool for ‘experimentation’ with the product data model. The CPN model supports the
 +step-by-step calculation and processing of data in the workflow process based on several
 +strategies and provides insight in the way PBWD works. Finally, the prototype is evaluated
 +with on the one hand a state space analysis to assess the correctness of the model and on
 +the other hand a simulation of a sample product data model.
