We envision an Internet computational platform of the 21st century that will include device ecologies consisting of collections of devices interacting synergistically with one another, with users, and with Internet resources. We consider device ecology workflows as a type of workflow describing how such devices work together. It would be ideal if one can model the devices in a computer and analyze the effects when such workflows are executed in the device ecology. This paper provides a Petri Net model in terms of workflow nets for analyzing the observable effects of device ecology workflows.
