A Modular Workflow Management Framework

João Rafael Almeida, Ricardo Ribeiro, José Luis Oliveira

Abstract

Task management systems are crucial tools in modern organizations, by simplifying the coordination of teams and their work. Those tools were developed mainly for task scheduling, assignment, follow-up and accountability. Then again, scientific workflow systems also appeared to help putting together a set of computational processes through the pipeline of inputs and outputs from each, creating in the end a more complex processing workflow. However, there is sometimes a lack of solutions that combine both manually operated tasks with automatic processes, in the same workflow system. In this paper, we present a web-based platform that incorporates some of the best functionalities of both systems, addressing the collaborative needs of a task manager with well-structured computational pipelines. The system is currently being used by a European consortium for the coordination of clinical studies.
