"A workflow consists of an orchestrated and repeatable pattern of business activity enabled by the systematic organization of resources into processes that transform materials, provide services, or process information. It can be depicted as a sequence of operations, declared as work of a person or group, an organization of staff, or one or more simple or complex mechanisms.
From a more abstract or higher-level perspective, workflow may be a view or representation of real work, thus serving as a virtual representation of actual work. The flow being described may refer to a document, service or product that is being transferred from one step to another.
Workflows may be viewed as one fundamental building block to be combined with other parts of an organisation's structure such as information silos, teams, projects, policies and hierarchies." [Workflow. Wikipedia]

"The term workflow is more commonly used in particular industries, such as printing and professional domains, where it may have particular specialized meanings.
(1) Processes: A process is a more general notion than workflow and can apply to physical or biological processes, for instance; whereas a workflow is typically a process or collection of processes described in the context of work, such as all processes occurring in a machine shop.
(2) Planning and scheduling: A plan is a description of the logically necessary, partially ordered set of activities required to accomplish a specific goal given certain starting conditions. A plan, when augmented with a schedule and resource allocation calculations, completely defines a particular instance of systematic processing in pursuit of a goal. A workflow may be viewed as an (often optimal or near-optimal) realization of the mechanisms required to execute the same plan repeatedly.
(3) Flow control is a control concept applied to workflows, to distinguish from static control of buffers of material or orders, to mean a more dynamic control of flow speed and flow volumes in motion and in process. Such orientation to dynamic aspects is the basic foundation to prepare for more advanced job shop controls, such as just-in-time or just-in-sequence.
(4) In-transit visibility is a monitoring concept that applies to transported material as well as to work in process or work in progress, i.e., workflows." [Workflow. Wikipedia]
