Workflow management systems are systems used specialy for the support of organizational processes. The premise of this work is that the basic units of any organization are the work process performed within it. Work processes are made up of communications between a customer and a performer, and actions by a performer. A work process model may be represented by a network conecting requester and performers as nodes. The workflow is represented by arcs in the network. A network for a entire organiyational process makes it possible to analyse the process for such things as a redundant communcation. Workflow management systems supports the building, analysis, and automation of workflow processes. Many of the issues faced by these systems are similar to those faces by PSEEs.
