(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE GESTION DE FLUX DE TRAVAIL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Systems and methods improve the equitable distribution the processing capacity of a computing device (102) processing work items (300) retrieved from multiple queues (120A, 120B, 120C) in a workflow system (104). A retrieval priority is determined for each of the plurality of queues (120A, 120B, 120C)) and work items (300) are retrieved from each of the multiple queues (120A, 120B, 120C) according to the retrieval priority. The retrieved work items (300) are then stored in a central data structure (400). Multiple processing components (510A, 510B, 510C) process the work items (300) stored in the central data structure. The number of processing components is selectively adjusted to maximize efficiency.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des systèmes et des procédés qui améliorent la distribution équitable de la capacité de traitement d'un dispositif informatique (102) traitant des éléments de travail (300) extraits de multiples files d'attente (120A, 120B, 120C) dans un système de flux de travail (104). Une priorité d'extraction est déterminée pour chacune de la pluralité de files d'attente (120A, 120B, 120C) et des éléments de travail (300) sont extraits de chacune des multiples files d'attente (120A, 120B, 120C) selon la priorité d'extraction. Les éléments de travail extraits (300) sont ensuite stockés dans une structure de données centrale (400). De multiples composants de traitement (510A, 510B, 510C) traitent les éléments de travail (300) stockés dans la structure de données centrale. Le nombre de composants de traitement est sélectivement ajusté pour rendre maximale l'efficacité.
