Workflow management system is a system that defines, creates and manages the execution of workflows through the use of software, running on one or more workflow engines, which is able to interpret the process definition, interact with workflow participants and, where required, invoke the use of IT tools and applications. It can also be seen as a system overseeing the process of passing information, documents, and tasks from one employee or machine to another within a business for action according to a set of procedural rules. This thesis is aimed at developing a workflow management system that would enable postgraduate students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka to do their registration electronically. This involves converting all manual processes to web-enabled registration designed on the concept of workflow. Specifically the tasks the proposed system can perform include: Online fees payment, automatic registration number generation, online course registration, online students information management, online course schedule system, online registration approval system and realtime feedback mechanism. The system also has a well formatted output that presents information to management in a meaningful format. The methodology adopted for this research is the structured system analysis and design methodology (SSADM). The tools used for the system design include VB.Net, Microsoft SQL server 2005, Visual Studio 2005, Microsoft .Net Frame work 2.0 and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 VSS Writer.
