Workflow management systems support business process design, execution, and analysis. They must guarantee that work is conducted at the right time-and by the right person or software application-through the execution of a workflow process model. YAWL (Yet Another Workflow Language) was developed in 2002 to show that comprehensive support for workflow patterns is achievable. Soon after the lan guage's inception, a prototype system was built to show that system support for such a complex language was possible. From that initial prototype, YAWL has grown into a full-fledged open source workflow management system and support environment.
