We have been working on workflow modeling for developing UIs. The WorkflowLab project has a lot of potential if we imagine an automated process to generate Flex (Information Systems) applications based on Workflows. Imagine that the granular details of a task are mapped onto Flex UIs.
Have you ever consider this potential of using a workflow model as a design of an Information system?
This is extremely helpful. We have been thinking of opening up the status drop down to allow custom status that you can assign to workflow items and it seems that this would be a good example of how it could be used.
Thanks for the information!

The main topic is on how from a workflow model the User Interfaces of the system modeled can be generated but special atention has been paid to task modeling.
If we can be of any help we would be very pleased to collaborate with your project.
