A Plus Workflow Editor
A Plus Workflow Editor is a graphical modeling studio of business processes in the Plus Workflow system. Due to this solution, it is possible to build and launch the subsequent document workflows individually, using one of the most popular modeling standards – Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN).
The Plus Workflow Editor is a tool intended for the individual development of process models by the Plus Workflow system users in the BPMN notation. A user may autonomously analyze and visualize the process. It is also possible to define particular stages and deploy the objects compatible with the XPDL standard and the BPMN. Moreover, the user, as the business process author, decides about the process workflow in the enterprise, its executors, information workflow, and integration with the external systems.
The Plus Workflow Editor enables designing the appearance of the selected stages – the electronic forms of the Plus Workflow system. For this purpose, the user may select the positions from the available library or add new ones. The Plus Workflow Editor dynamically introduces all the modifications to the preview of the forms. Thanks to this, the user can control the future appearance of the forms on an ongoing basis. Process modeling is quick and easy. Moreover, to eliminate the errors, the system is equipped with prompts, particularly useful for less-advanced users. The tool automatically executes validations, so all the logical errors are detected straight away. The Plus Workflow Editor has been integrated with the Plus Workflow system. The user may also send the modeled process to the system and test it. After the testing phase, there is an option to modify the model to optimize the business process.
