Triggered by the reply to this post: http://jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=128540, i tried to find all documents related to BAM. I did not find much, but the impression I get is more an after-the-fact analysis tool.
When we are adding more date/time information to jBPM, can't we also add functionality to look ahead and forecast future workloads?
It would be nice to know how many tasks way down in the process will have to be performed next week for a certain role. This should take into account duration of tasks, transitions, wait times and also scheduled fixed dates for certain tasks.
Maybe I'm trying to get things from jBPM that do not belong in a workflow system, but being a newbie to the workflow technology, it seems like a logical feature to have in place.
Let me know if there are plans in this direction and how I could potentially help.
They are not so much 'documents', more like discussions in the forum, some notes in the wiki etc....
Without going into the the differences between BAM and BI, yes, more info about what you describe could be added. That is why I referred you to the simulation part of jBPM.
