Abstract

Workflow management Systems (WfMSs) support the automation of all or parts of a company business processes. This technology is considered key by many businesses from a strategic point of view, and its market growth does not show any sign of receding. Business process digitisation is a crucial component of the digital transformation and the aerospace manufacturing engineering industry is lacking research efforts on the performance of different workflow management systems. In order to compare different workflow solutions, they need to be categorised based on some criteria. This research provides a classification of the different workflow technologies that exist in the market, with the respective advantages and disadvantages, together with a high level approach for a consistent digitisation of different workflows.
