Start year: 1998

Summary: Workflows within organisations must satisfy process needs while fitting in with the organisational structure. The aim of this project is to construct an intelligent workflow management system. Most workflows to date have been defined in terms of a fixed organisational structure and have concentrated on process needs. This system will include organisastional knowledge thus making workflows adaptable to organisational changes. To achieve this aim we will integrate knowedge technology and computer supported cooperative technologies. The proposal will develop generalised knowledge srtuctures and primitives to define both workflows and the factors and rules which determine workflows.
