Abstract [en]

In today's world, companies and scientific institutions must always be careful toremain competitive. Efficient design and automation of important processes to savetime, money and other resources is currently a popular way of staying competitive.To this end, workflow management systems are frequently used to supportprocesses and automate them as much as possible. However, many of suchprocesses still require the creation of reports, which can be very costly. Withoutgreater technical expertise, the process of creating reports can hardly be automatedin its full flexibility. Since this problem affects many organizations in a wide rangeof fields, this project is dedicated to a possible solution to this problem. Therefore,this paper will suggest a way to automate the report generation using a suitablereport generation system in connection with a workflow management system. Thedeveloped solution, in general, can be applied to various processes of differentdomains and reduces the programming effort towards other solutions. The approachis based on the common use of a database as well as on the development of a notso-complex connecting adapter. The execution of this adapter, which is a smallpiece of software that automates the generation of reports, is then triggered by theworkflow management system.
