The Kuali Enterprise Workflow (KEW) is a general purpose, content-based electronic routing infrastructure or workflow engine. Client applications use the KEW to automate and regulate the routing and approval processes for the transactions/documents they create. Worflow starts with an e-doc that users compose in a client application such as the KFS or another Web application that requires routing and approval of documents. The KEW electronically routes the e-doc to designated individuals and groups for approval in a prescribed sequence, according to established university or departmental business rules and policies based on the e-doc's content.
The KEW streamlines mediated business processes across the enterprise. Via the KEW centralized routing system, users can access and search for many types of e-docs from various client applications, such as HR, Purchasing, Travel, Research Administration, Timekeeping, etc.
