After this lecture, students should
- be able to model and design workflow-centric applications
- have an in-depth knowledge of the integration of enterprise applications into workflows
- know how to design process-oriented applications
- know how to implement processes that can be optimized
Preliminary discussion (compulsory attendance): 12.03.2017 5 pm (EI 2)
In the theoretical part of the course, students will learn the basic concept of workflow modeling. Thereby, the lecture puts a special focus on highly automated workflows, integrating different kinds of enteprise applications. Furthermore, patterns for designing and modeling enterprise-wide workflows are introduced.
In the practical part of the course, students form groups of four or five. Each group has to design and implement a process-oriented application. The domain of the application can be freely chosen, however, the respective business processes have to be designed with a tool producing BPMN 2.0 conformant code and under consideration of the learned patterns. Afterwards, the business process models shall be deployed to a workflow engine. Finally, the respective business logic of the workflow activities has to be implemented, where each member has to implement at least one activity.
