I change the SDF director to PN one and my workflow running without 
problems. I am just reading single binary file that contains atmospheric 
data in time dimension.  I read each time step and send to the writer 
actor. So, the number of sending data from one actor to other is equal 
to number of time stem in the source binary file.

 > Do you need to process multiple files in one workflow run?

no i don't need it.

 > Or produce more than one output file for a given input file?

no the output file is single.

but i want to use this structure in a bigger workflow that process some 
variables etc. and the bigger workflow uses SDF director. I hope this 
structure work in it.

thanks for your kindly help,
