Adding an Acceptance Testing Workflow to a Purchase Request Workflow

Friday, December 31, 2010
Yesterday we provided a sample workflow for requesting purchases in "Handling Purchase Requests for Office Supplies."
Naturally, now we'll want a workflow for managing delivered products and acceptance testing. Let's connect this "Acceptance Testing" workflow with our "Purchase Request" workflow. (Of course, these could be managed in a separate system.)

We'd like to mention the importance of allowing everyone to see all pending purchase requests. This means that when someone notices the office has run out of toner cartridges, he/she can find out if anyone has already made a request for purchase.

If you want to automatically send these purchase expenses to the accounting system (core system), the best way is to add a Message Throwing Intermediate Event after the acceptance testing.
