    SAP Workflow is a tool to automate complex business processes where there is more than one user involved. SAP workflow maps the position in organization because SAP believes that Positions are more stable than the people.

    SAP Workflow is a process tool that is designed to facilitate and automate business processes involving the tasks sequence performed by the users (people in the workplace) and ensure that the right work is assigned in the right sequence at the right time to the right person in the workflow. The SAP workflow can be linked to other software tools such as Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes. Using SAP Workflow, each step of a business transaction can be easily monitored throughout the initiation and completion of the business processes. The SAP Workflow enables the process owners to track deadlines, determine the workload as well as provide statistics on the length of time to complete work processes.

    The key components of the SAP Workflow include the Workflow Definition, Work Items, Events triggers and the Organizational Structure in the workplace.

    Technically SAP Workflow is an integrated part of SAP application server.

    hi

    SAP Business Workflow enables the design and execution of business processes within SAP application systems: Workflow processes are delivered as content in the SAP Business Suite. Additionally, customers can not only enhance those workflows provided by SAP, but they can also create their own workflows. SAP Business Workflow is at the heart of the SAP system. Through integration with Organizational Management and standard SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence for reporting and analysis, this enables you to manage business processes which fit into your organization, the application, and which can be used for auditing and business process compliance.

    refer following link

    http://it.toolbox.com/wiki/index.php/SAP_Workflow

    example

    WORKFLOW FOR PO RELEASE PROCEDURE

    Steps involved are :

    1) SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Purchase Order > Release Procedure for Purchase Orders > Define Release Procedure for Purchase Orders > Release Codes > here assign Workflow indicator as "1" against each Release Code

    2) SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Purchase Order > Release Procedure for Purchase Orders > Define Release Procedure for Purchase Orders > Workflow > Here against each release code assign OT as US and respective User ID's for Release Codes.

    3) Go to OOCU > here under MM, go to MM-PUR,

    4) Click on "activate event linking"

    5) Go for "WS 20000075" and for BUS2012 RELEASESTEPCREATED, click on Detailed view button. Activate "Event linkage activated" and also activate "Enable usage of event queue"

    and Save.

    6) Click on "Assign agents" and proceed all above steps.

    BUS2012 is the relevant business object and Releasestep created is the event for the same.

    7) Check SWETYPV transaction for the WF you have activated for BUS2012 and confirm.

    Test the same by creating a PO and check the SBWP for SAP Mail of respective Users

    hope it clears

    regards
