Roles of Flexibility in Workflow Engineering

Shweta M. Tayade and Vinay Chavan

Abstract—No matter what type of area, application, operating system or programs is used workflow technology is used to enhance it to make work user friendly & simple. In order to adequately support the execution of business processes in an increasingly turbulent world with shorter cycle times, workflow management systems must provide higher support for flexibility by easy & simple ways. When applying business process reengineering the significance of workflow technology has been now observed to a great extent. Workflow technology is currently being deployed in quite diverse domains. However, the element of change is present in some degree and form in almost all domains. A workflow implementation that does not support the process of change will not benefit the organization in the long run. Change can be manifested in different forms in workflow processes. In this paper, we first study workflow in its dynamic, adaptive & flexible kinds of processes. Here, we can say that flexibility is the ability of the workflow process to run on the basis of a loosely, or partially coupled model, where the full definition of the model is made at runtime, and may be unique to each instance of execution.

Index Terms—Business process, business, workflow, flexible.
