Abstract: Collaborative management systems have come a long way since the first office automation prototypes of the 1980s. In the past decade, Lotus Note and SMTP email have encouraged workflow and collaboration in the business world. Nowadays, workflow system terms are deployed in a vast variety of situations, ranging from the coordination of document-centered processes in office environments to the automation of application data flow in enterprise application. In this dissertation, a Word document workflow application architecture will be presented. Chinese University and Hong Kong Polytechnic University students built the architecture on two-years research. They have developed a framework and completed an architecture including resource management, workflow engine, system administration client and user client. The focus of this paper will be mainly on capitalizing the existing workflow application to improve user interface feature. The task of capitalization of the application to improve user interface feature is challenging because the latest technology includes XML, DOM, JAVA, CORBA, VB, and ORBIX etc. MS Office VBA and XML will be used in this dissertation. The evaluation result are positive (80% satisfaction) and we find lots of users agree that the Business-oriented Collaborative Work Process System (BCWS) fits with their requirements and is important to the business world.
