Workflow Management and Project Management

Note that workflow management and project management are similar concepts, but they are not identical. Project management is the larger process of coordinating, planning, and controlling specific, unique projects. Workflow management is the process of defining and monitoring small, repetitive components and activities of a business using an automated system. Remember that documenting the workflow process is critical to project managers, professionals, and researchers alike, because it offers a roadmap for the future, increases transparency and reproducibility, and allows for data analysis within the data lifecycle.

Workflow Components

Generally speaking, workflow components may be described by three parameters: Input, transformation, and output:

INPUT

Resources and materials that are required to complete every step.

TRANSFORMATION

A specific set of rules that dictate how input is received and what functions are done to it.

OUTPUT

Resources and materials that are produced during every step, that act as input to the next step.

More Components

Every workflow must contain the following components: Actors, activities, results, and states:

ACTORS

People or machines that are responsible for the process, or a part of it.

ACTIVITIES

The tasks or processes that are performed and represent a single, logical step in the process.

RESULTS

Results are the desired outcomes of every step.

STATES

States are situations when a project is between processes.
