There is a new video series on Business Process Automation. The previous video series is on the Business Process Management System YAWL. It focuses on using the system and is over 90% hands on tutorials. This new series tries to fill the gap about more general practical tips on Business Process Automation that are independent of YAWL.
Workflows automated with YAWL can be easily examined using process mining technology. YAWL delivers event logs in XES format out of the box. These logs can be imported in a tool like Disco.
The integration of the workflow management system YAWL into the Enterprise Portal Liferay is now ready. It is now possible to build a web-based application based on an individual workflow that has been designed by rapid prototyping. The solution is entirely based on open source components and uses powerful code generation technology to keep the development and maintenance effort low.
The advantage of using modern workflow technology is a close relationship between process models and IT solutions that support real world business processes. Every change in the process model has a direct impact on the Workflow Management System. Workflow technology is the enabler for the quick adaptation to changing requirements and Continuous Process Improvement (CPI). Rheni proceeds in three steps here:
