Background Business Process Management (BPM) is intended to be a systematic approach to improving business processes Processes may include activities that humans perform as well as system activities Processes may cross department, location, company and application boundaries The “big picture” view has BPM tying together people, systems and content to execute repeatable processes in the most efficient way possibleCopyright © 2012 Aras.

Workflow and Life Cycle Workflow models things people (or systems) do May have parallel branches, multiple assignments, looping and sub-flows Life Cycles define mutually exclusive states An item may be in only one state at a time Transitions between states often trigger business rules Multiple workflows (automated or manual) may trigger the same state transition BPM solutions sometimes blur the line How can something be in more than one state at a time? Why model the same business rule in multiple workflows?Copyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 4 aras.com
Two Views of Workflow Workflow drives Life Cycle One overarching Workflow runs for the duration of multiple Life Cycle states Often used for relatively short Life Cycles, like for ECRs Life Cycle drives Workflow A Workflow models the actions to get from one Life Cycle state to the next Used between states of long Life Cycles, like Active→ObsoleteCopyright © 2012 Aras.
