The Following steps will guide you through a complete resource cycle in Rembrandt.
To take full advantage of Rembrandts functionality, we recommend using a BPMN modeling tool. (e.g. Gryphon) and a business process managment system (BPMS) (e.g. Chimera). Working with Rembrandt follows a certain sequence of steps:
model all resource types
instantiate resources (can also be done during run-time)
model the optimization problem
build the recipe
model the BPMN process including resource instantiation and allocation tasks
deploy the modeled process to the BPMS
execute the process
Below you can see the workflow using the BPMN modeling tool Gryphon and the BPMS Chimera.
The organization component in Rembrandt is used to:
model resource types
delete resources and types
See Resource Modeling and Management for further information.
Resource Assignment is done in the optimization component. Here you can:
See Resource Assignment for further information.
The Allocation is normally done during run-time but can be started manually from the recipe view. The Executions tab in the optimization section shows the current status of all started resource allocations.
See Resource Allocation for further information.
Communication between Frontend and Backend is handles via REST requests, which are documented in a swagger file. This means that all queries and tasks can be started without use of the front end.
