Business audit management system based on workflow.
Business audit management system is a powerful software environment based on workflow that supports the enterprise to perform efficient process management and automation. In this paper, the design of a business audit management system is discussed. Detailed discussion on the audit operation management and the implementation of workflow execution service is provided. Today organizations face the challenges of globalization, which have led to unprecedented levels of competition. In competitive global markets, organizations need to find better business solutions, with flexible and reliable structures. Much of an enterprise’s infrastructure and organization is enabled by information systems that directly or indirectly support business processes of crucial importance to growth and survival. By managing these processes more efficiently, competitive advantage can be gained via cost reduction, product enhancement, and customer service improvements. Business Scope:Business audit management system consists of the audit management component, the website management component, audit OLAP (Online Analysis) sub- system, report and statement subsystem , safety guarantee system etc.The audit management component is daily business management platform, completing the audit process management, document management.The document management includes:document announces,replies, remind service and sign jointly etc.The process management includes: The process orders, the process announces, the process interferes, the process cancels etc.The website management includes: User management, depart management, coorperate management , data piping etc. The audit OLAP sub- system includes: Risk supervises and controls sub- system;The business data collects sub- system;The finance supervises and control the sub- system.The audit OLAP sub- system management should have the mighty data collected and analyzed. The report and statement sub- system will concentrate and checkup the trustworthy data to deposit together, calculation ability and search quickly.Some not audit function module, such as personnel’s address book , mail system, corporate culture developments, chat room etc.Technological Scope:The trend of business audit system is to develop a system with different applications of management, with three-layer architecture, and with support of international standards of techniques. The three-layer architecture consists of three layer: client applacations layer, workflow logic layer and data transmission layer. To allow for reusability and extensibility, System is formulated in an Componet-Based Design model based on J2EE platform ,using workflow technique and BEA Tuxedo trade middleware.The client applacations layer : Web_applacation interface between client and workflow logic layer. The layer according to user needs offering audit management, document management, website management, process management etc.Data transmission provides with data operation using BEA Tuxedo trades middleware interface service. Middleware components help solve these problems. They provide core software infrastructures that make it relatively straightforward to build distributed application that are high-performance and scalable. They provide sets of services that support, for example, off-the-shelf distributed transaction processing, security features, and directory and naming services. They also provide specialized components for integration with massive variety of legacy system, and the ability to design and deploy new business processes that integrate multiple distributed applications.The workflow management logic layer is composed by workflowengine, the XPDL workflow definition, automatic COM object ,data conversion module, the business component.1. The workflow engine: A workflow system is composed of a set of applications and tools that allows for the definition, the creation, and the management of the various activities associated with workflows (business processes).
