2004 EHR WfMS Tutorial Slide 13: Cookbook: Cooking Analogy Workflow Reference Model

(Take me to the beginning of these slides!)

I imagine that this hi-tech donut shop has a cookbook someplace, some kind of binder full of policies and procedures and recipes. These are used to manage desert creation. This cookbook is made up of activities. Some of these activities are manual activities such as mixing ingredients, placing in an oven, adding glaze and other are programmable activities, automated activities that rely on automated mixers and conveyor belt ovens and icers.
