Companies with complex organisational structure often face the situation when ad-hoc and multi actor’s processes have to be done in time.
In my thesis i would like to demonstrate what kind of processes are going on in an ERP system when an employee is transfered to another position or his contract is due. In this paper i will focus on the actors of the Exit Workflow project, their duties and deadlines of tasks.
During my work i had to get familiar with the SAP Business Workflow, Web Dynpro and Enterprice Portal technologies. It was very important to understand how different technologies connect to each other. Consultation with more experienced developers was necessary as well as read professional books. I had to design the interactions between these applied technologies when it should happen and in what order in the process’ life cycle.
I have joined the project after the design phase. I had to implement the process about the settlement of the employee’s assets and develop reports. It was important for me to understand the responsibilities of both areas in the process. I had to take into consideration the authority of the users also when and what kind of activities they are allowed to work on.
My tasks related to the assets followed through the entire process. In order to accomplish them, I had to use every technology what was involved in the project.
The reports that were developed by me give information about the settlements, and their history. I have created test cases for the activities of the assets in the development system. I have also analyzed the correctness of the functions and the dataflow at the connection points of the technologies.
The created system meets the client’s requirements and it has been introduced by now.
At the end of the project we achived to define the tasks for every affected person and ensure that the processes will be finished in time under any circumstances.
