keytech Workflow Engine

With the Integrated BPMN Workflow Engine Business Processes are under Your Control.

With The keytech Workflow Engine You Can Integrate BPMN 2.0 Into Your PLM and DMS System

A central challenge in the context of digitization and Industry 4.0 is to define even complex business processes in a sustainable business process management.

At the same time, processes are often not necessarily simplified due to increasing and constantly changing market requirements. Increasingly complex business processes ultimately also increase the need for a uniform process language and documentation. This is one of the reasons why processes are described as workflows using the ISO standard BPMN.

With the keytech workflow engine you integrate a BPMN workflow engine directly into keytech PLM & DMS and can design processes graphically and easily apply and execute the resulting business logic directly into keytech without much programming effort. With the help of the processes implemented in the document management, process steps can be automated to support employees in their work in an optimal way. And finally, the automated documentation of the individual process steps massively increases the transparency of the business processes in the entire organization. You create a deeper understanding of your own value-added process and can analyze and optimize existing processes in a target-oriented way.

Your Benefits At A Glance


It's not without reason that processes have long been graphically designed in the design phase with tools such as Microsoft® Office Visio®. The graphic design of processes offers an intuitive and easily understandable access to the design of business processes.

The workflows of keytech workflow engine can be created graphically and BPMN compliant. This provides each employee with an intuitive access to the design of processes in keytech, which creates a stable basis for discussion in the process design phase and increases transparency for all involved. Unlike other graphical design tools, the logic check of the keytech workflow engine ensures that the result is a consistent and executable workflow. The finished workflow can be implemented and executed directly in keytech PLM & DMS without any programming effort.


With the help of the keytech workflow engine your processes in keytech are optimally controlled and individual process steps can be automated. The automated creation of tasks for individual employees who, for example must perform a check during a product release, can also be perfectly integrated into the process. They simply get the relevant work packages for the respective process steps "placed on the table".

This means that all those involved are always integrated into the workflow, thus ensuring that the processes run smoothly.


Because the job of a process owner or process manager does not end once the finished workflow has been implemented, the Process Cockpit provides you with exactly the tools you need to gain a full perspective of the overall process. Thanks to the detailed documentation of the individual process runs by the keytech workflow engine, data from the live operation is available, which can be analyzed with the help of heat maps and other tools. Based on the analysis, the data can be optimized more and more.

Thus, the keytech workflow engine contributes significantly to process transparency and the optimization of your workflows.
