    This unit examines how enterprises create and manage their business processes. Current modelling languages are used to represent workflow and the integration of computer-based support of workflow into its enterprise setting. The data management systems, information management systems and knowledge management systems necessary to business processes are reviewed and their role in enterprise systems design made explicit. The design of policy, documents and procedures is complimented with an understanding of responsibilities, authorisations, precedents and the information life cycle. Systems implementation organisational change issues are highlighted. Contextual influences on workflow and document design are considered, including organizational structure, relevant international standards and relevant software support for the design and implementation of enterprise workflow systems.
