Flexible software for workflow management

A flexible workflow and traceability management system has been designed for business processes requiring quality assurance, product traceability and constant monitoring.
Flexible software for workflow management
The information system permits performance functions on various parts of any business procedure, a list of features related to the parts and the actual definition of the parts themselves. Parts can be defined as any unique components of the process, including tangible parts such as mechanical or electronic parts as virtual parts such as processes or services.

The activities can define a workflow with a specific path, which enables smoother operation. The system can also notify operators interacting with the system via a Web interface of any deviation from the predefined workflow. Since it requires no human intervention for populating its database, the system can be easily interfaced with automatic systems. This enables the tracking of activities and the parts. Furthermore, the data are available for applications such as statistical analysis and production monitoring.

The intrinsically flexible software is distributed via an Open Source software license. It has a high degree of integration and configuration and it is easy to learn and operate as well as cost effective. The software is appropriate for any business process requiring quality assurance, product traceability and continual monitoring imposed by law such as logistics, mechanics and assembling of high quality parts.
