Graph transformation works under a whole-world assumption. In modelling realistic systems, this typically makes for large graphs and sometimes also large, hard to understand rules. From process algebra, on the other hand, we know the principle of reactivity, meaning that the system being modelled is embedded in an environment with which it continually interacts. This has the advantage of allowing modular system specifications and correspondingly smaller descriptions of individual components. Reactivity can alternatively be understood as enabling compositionality: the specification of components and subsystems are composed to obtain the complete model.
