Workflow Components

1. Engines and User Interfaces

ISVs often want to offer customers advanced process capabilities to enable the integration of their solutions into an existing processes and IT landscape. Small-embedded workflow engines do indeed allow workflow features to be used for their own software, but offer no functionality that allows customers to design or use their own, comprehensive workflows.

The CEITON workflow engine of the Web Workflow PPS system consists of the following components:

  • Workflow and Rules Engine
  • Form server and home area for user
  • EAI module for individual interfaces
  • Report server for printing, analysis etc.

This allows the ISV, as well as their clients, to design workflows, forms, interfaces and reports by themselves. Abstraction languages enable the actualization of the most complex and highly dynamic requirements, which is impossible using simple visual editors. Since 2D is no longer sufficient, the workflow engine visualizes in 3D, so a third level is available for modeling dynamic instance-able elements such as sub-workflows. This allows end-users understand and arrange workflows more easily themselves.

2. Other features

  • Dynamic internal sub-workflows
  • Dynamic multi-level forms
  • Dynamic rules and dependency engine
  • Dynamic link to the interface module
  • Simple, consistent design without programming or data modeling
  • Saving all workflow and form definitions in a structured way in the database, not in files
  • Reusable element groups for masks or interfaces
  • Versioning of workflows and instances
  • Views and forms spanning instances for users
  • Features for changing forms en masse
  • Template-based processing of forms, as well as en masse
