Dynamic Guidance Enhancement in Workflow Management Systems

Christoph Günther, Stefan Schönig, Stefan Jablonski

Today’s workflow management systems have become increasingly powerful. Some prototypic approaches even tend to not patronise the users by providing a set of process steps to follow, but let them decide which step to choose next. The idea behind this approach is the impossibility to model every special case of a workflow, because a fixed process order would necessarily be inefficient or even incorrect in some cases. By admitting this freedom, the risk of confounding the users is taken. That is why we provide a qualified guidance instance through the process.
