Executive Summary

Workflow management systems guide and monitor tasks performed by humans and computers. The workflow specifications are usually expressed in special purpose (graphical) formalisms. These formalisms impose severe restrictions on what can be expressed. Modern workflow management systems should handle intricate data dependencies, offer a web-based interface, and should adapt to dynamically changing situations, all based on a sound formalism. To address these challenges, the authors have developed the iTask system, which is a novel workflow management system.
