Technical workflows need to incorporate information and input from other areas of the organization that are part of the product lifecycle. Workflow management is the lifeblood of most manufacturing and engineering companies. So organizations have spent a lot of time creating manual and semi-automated mechanisms to keep abreast. In addition, legacy systems have been built to further support and report on these processes. Getting today’s technology, where speed of information retrieval is much faster, to not “bump up” against these systems and culture is often a significant task. The technical workflows speed is only as fast as the slowest element in the chain, whether it is information input, output, or analysis. http://www.equorum.com/technical-workflows-whitepaper/
