Lynx D4.2 Initial version of workflow definition

Moreno Schneider, Julián; Rehm, Georg

This report provides an overview of the first description of the curation workflows associated with every use case (as defined in D4.1 [LynxD41]), specifically for the pilot use cases, structured in three phases:

  1. Collection of all information related to the workflows.
  2. Definition of the workflows needed to address every use case.
  3. Conceptual reduction of the workflows based on their similarities.

This process resulted in eight workflows for the three business cases (pilots). The business cases are composed of four scenarios: data protection, labour law, CE marking and geothermal energy. From these scenarios, sets of use cases were extracted: three use cases for data protection, three use cases for labour law, two use cases for CE marking and two use cases for geothermal energy. The use cases have been defined so that they can guide the further development process by defining example users (persona approach). Each persona includes representative workflows provided by the Lynx platform.

The workflows are divided into two groups: (i) those that are commonly used in more than one use case; and (ii) those that are use case specific.

  • The common workflows are:
    • LKG population
  • The use case specific workflows are:
    • Contract Analysis
    • Contract Search
    • Labour Law Search
    • CE Marking Search
    • CE Marking Extended Search
    • Geothermal Search
    • Geothermal Extended Search

Apart from the workflows defined for the business cases, there is another use case, the General User Use Case, for which we will also define specific workflows to be tackled in future meetings.

Now that the initial definition of workflows has been completed, next steps include:

  • Define the workflows associated with the General User Use Case.
  • Define the workflows associated with the training of common services. For example, the Dictionary Access service will be used for the training of several services, such as EntEx.
  • Finalize the definition of the workflows including the feedback obtain in the discussion held with all the members of the consortium in the plenary meeting in Vienna on November 14 and 15, 2018.
  • Once all workflows are specified, the different implementation options will be explored.
