Traditional work flow management systems distribute work-items to users via a work-list and leave the actual timing of work-item execution to the individual resources performing the task. In work environments in which resources are scarce, expensive and multiple resources are necessary to undertake the work-item, often an appointment-based approach is utilized in order to maximize resource utilization. To this end, the authors propose the extension of a work flow management system with planning and monitoring facilities in order to guarantee effective resource utilization and minimize dead-time for resources as a result of canceled appointments.
