Workflow Management


Workflow management refers to the process of connecting various software tools based on specific input and output parameters. The goal of workflow management is to automate specific sets of tasks that are repeated many times and thus simplify execution and avoid typical human errors that often occur when repetitive tasks are performed. An example of successful project involving workflow management is Deep Sky - a response to the needs of several astrophysics projects hosted at NERSC. Here, Peter Nugent has created an all-sky digital image based upon the point-and-stare observations taken via the Palomar-QUEST Consortium and the SN Factory + Near Earth Asteroid Team.
