How to organize staff for Workflow development

We are in the process of automating the creation of a material using Workflow. Since this is the first attempt at using Workflow, I have been asked to determine how other companies organize their staff as it relates to workflow development.

at using Workflow, I have been asked to determine how other companies organize their staff as it relates to workflow development. Generally speaking does the Business analyst (configuration) determine and/or define the process, then there is a Workflow developer to create the workflow and if necessary an ABAP'er for any custom code? Or would one person (i.e. Business Analyst) determine the process as well as create the workflow? I am thinking the latter is the better way. What have you seen in your experiences with other companies? Thanks for your input.


The best results are definitely achieved by having the Business Analyst concentrate on the requirements and how they can be achieved in SAP and allowing the technical specialists determine the best way of implementing the Workflow. A lot of times Workflows are unnecessarily complicated or inefficient because they have been designed and built by people who do not have a technical background. The best results are definitely achieved with both a functional and a technical resource. I don't see a need for a separate ABAP'er as I believe that a Workflow developer should also be an ABAP'er.

If you have any more specific questions please do not hesitate to contact me at araskin@3i-consulting.com.
