Workow Management Systems (WfMSs) provide platforms for delivering complex service-oriented applications that need to satisfy enterprise-grade quality of service requirements such as dependability and scalability. In this paper we fo- cus on the case of benchmarking the performance of the core of WfMSs, Workow Engines, that are compliant with the Business Process Model and Notation 2.0 (BPMN 2.01) standard. We _rst explore the main challenges that need to be met when designing such a benchmark and describe the approaches we designed for tackling them in the Bench- Flow project2. We discuss our approach to distill the essence of real-world processes to create from it processes for the benchmark, and to ensure that the benchmark _nds wide applicability.
