The research and application of workflow technology has great significance to manufacturing industry. The combination of workflow and data management technology provides a solution to business process automation. Some research on relevant problem of this field was done in this paper.Firstly, the composition of enterprise workflow model and the interrelation of each part was analyzed in this paper. Based on the analysis of workflow model, the process to build process model and organization model was summarized.Secondly, the methods to realize business process automation were analyzed and focus was placed on the method based on Lotus Domino, a kind of groupware platform. Based on the research of workflow principle on Domino platform, the basic workflow realization method was summarized and the solution in which process definition is separated with enactment services was designed. After that, a solution to unstructured data management and the integration of multiple data resource was given in this paper.Finally, an example of business process automation was given through an office automation system. According to the development process of this system, methods were given on building organization model, building and analyzing business process model, realizing business process automation through workflow technology, user management and the design and realization of web client.
