Workflow management systems (WFMS) are intended to improve business processes in terms of analysis and of automation. Our approach, based on a realistic development life cycle, indicates the modeling and implementation requirements to speed up the development of workflow applications (mainly administrative and ad-hoc workflows [5]). This paper presents both our methodology and tool to support this lifecycle for human-oriented workflows [8].
