Dangelmaier, Wilhelm, Kress, Stephan and Wenski, Rudiger (1997): Telework Under the Co-Ordination of a Distributed Workflow Management System. In: Payne, Stephen C. and Prinz, Wolfgang (eds.) Proceedings of the International ACM SIGGROUP Conference on Supporting Group Work 1997 November 11-19, 1997, Phoenix, Arizona, USA. pp. 128-137. http://www.acm.org/pubs/articles/proceedings/cscw/266838/p128-dangelmaier/p128-dangelmaier.pdf

Telework is considered as an innovative work organization form for new decentralized structures. The flexibility of telework in the dimensions time and location of task execution must make it possible to take advantage of this work organization for the companies competitiveness. Today, telework is mainly used for isolated tasks and those with few cross references to others. But telework will only achieve its full potential, if attention is given to the fact that work in companies is normally co-operative work. For this co-operative work business process modeling and workflow management is accepted as a supporting methodology. The increasing effort for co-ordination and monitoring is seen to be the main obstacle of co-operative telework. The use of existing workflow management systems for the support of co-operative telework is currently not possible; there is no tool available with specific co-ordination and planning functionality for this purpose. In this paper, we will define a specific business process model which is oriented for the modeling of decentralized structures especially for telework and the direct support by a workflow management system (WFMS). Compared to traditional WFMS, our system is extended by a module for the planning and monitoring functionality required for monitoring of teleworkers and their time management. The system is built using Internet-technology and is using platform-independent WWW-software for the user interface.
