Use of workflow patterns in selecting a workflow management system

Several organizations have selected their workflow management system based on the patterns. Notable examples where the workflow patterns have been explicitly used in the selection process are the UWV (the Dutch Employee Insurance Administration Office) (see Pallas Athena newsletter 2003/01) and the Dutch Justice Department . Both organizations used the patterns in their European tender procedure. Many other organizations (e.g.  ArboNed, an organization providing health-care support ) have used the patterns in a more indirect manner in their selection processes.
