Dear Bhaskar,

SAP Business Workflow uses the existing transactions and functions of the R/3 System and does not change the functions. You can combine the existing functions of the R/3 System to form new business processes with SAP Business Workflow.

The workflow system takes over control of the business processes. If you are already using SAP Organizational Management, you can use the organizational structure created there to have the relevant agents carry out the individual activities. It is possible to have an activity carried out by a position. This ensures that the respective occupiers of the position can carry out the individual activities during execution of the workflow. This means that personnel changes in your organization are taken into account immediately in the execution of a workflow.

Simple Scenario :

Workflow is a process i.e for example if you want to apply for a leave in an oganisation, you will just login and send a request for number of days. In the back end process, i.e who should approve your leave and after approval one day from your total leaves is deducted or if you are not having leaving leaves it should go to finance dept so that loss of pay leave is given. All this is called work flow, as a developer we will configure this workflow

Hope this helps you.

The main purpose of SAP Business Workflow is to get the right task to the right agent

(organizational unit, position, job or user) at the right time. This speeds up the completion of

business processes. Organizational Management provides the framework for a routing structure

that SAP Business Workflow uses for task assignment at runtime. By scrolling through the

complex network of relationships in an organizational plan , SAP Business Workflow is able

to pinpoint exactly where tasks should be routed. This organizational plan provides you with

_ a flexible model of your company on the system, which you can manipulate to reflect actual

and proposed human resources scenarios

_ a structure along which you can route your business processes

There are two possible cases:

_ The Organizational Management component is used for human resources purposes in your

enterprise. In this case, you use the organizational plan for human resources purposes as

well as for workflow. As long as integration between Personnel Administration and

Organizational Management is acitve, you can assign tasks to both users and employees.

You can assign users to employees in the Communication (0105) infotype.

_ The Organizational Management component is not used in your enterprise. In this case, you

create only a small part of your organizational plan in order that all workflows may run. As there is no integration with Human Resources, you can only assign tasks to users.

To reduce the number of agents found, or to restrict the number of agents responsible, you can

Hi Bhaskar,

SAP Business Workflow can be used to define business processes that are not yet mapped in the R/3 System. These may be simple release or approval procedures, or more complex business processes such as creating a material master and the associated coordination of the departments involved. SAP Business Workflow is particularly suitable for situations in which work processes have to be run through repeatedly, or situations in which the business process requires the involvement of a large number of agents in a specific sequence.

You can also use SAP Business Workflow to respond to errors and exceptions in other, existing business processes. You can start a workflow when predefined events occur, for example an event can be triggered if particular errors are found during an automatic check.

SAP provides several workflows that map predefined business processes. These workflows do not require much implementation
