The paper 'Contemporary Application of Workflow Management Systems in Project Management" is a good example of a management term paper. The workflow management system is a concept that involves the use of computers for the purposes of managing the operations of a company. The history of the workflow management system can be traced back from the twentieth century when the work management concepts were developed. However, the concepts were fully developed after the introduction of computers and software. The system has advantages and disadvantages in terms of its applications. The major pro of the system is its ability to make the work easier through the use of technology.
The management of cash-flow activities as well as operations is enhanced through the use of the concept. It is also possible to detect the bottlenecks within the process through the use of the system. However, the major con is the high maintenance and upgrading cost that is involved. The main suppliers have been making improvements to the system and hence the changes in the system. The main strength of the changes is the ability of the system to fulfill the requirements of the client in the face of technological changes.
However, its weakness is the inconvenience that it costs clients as they have to purchase new versions. In comparison with the international standards, the UAE is still below the international standards. This is due to the low levels of technology in the country as compared to international levels. However, some companies and government departments have adopted the system. According to the trends in the use of the system, it is evident that it has a bright future both internationally ad in the UAE.
It is also recommended that the companies should invest in the information technology infrastructure so as to utilize the system Introduction The workflow management system (WMS) is software that offers a platform to set up, implement and closely observe scientific workflows. Procedures are used to monitor and establish the processes involved for the purpose of ensuring that the workflow is well managed. The automation of services due to technological advancements is increasingly becoming common. This has made the workflow management easier for most of the organizations.
The main aim of managing the workflow is to ensure that the efficiency of the business is improved. The improvement of the efficiency of the organization is important in terms of enhancing the service provision within the organization. The automation for the services has greatly contributed to the accountability of the procedures within the organization. The elimination of unnecessary steps is also one of the aims of the workflow management (Krefting, et al, 680). This is because it creates a constant pattern that has to be followed by the employees when carrying out their operations.
The use of constant patterns enables the organization to easily trace the source of any errors or mistake within the workflow.
