Information spaces deployed under the Joint Battlespace Infosphere JBI program utilize small transformation fuselets to build up applications of meaning to end users. FuseFlow is a design, management, and performance monitoring system for structured collections of JBI fuselets and non fuselet clients. These collections, termed fuselet workflows, have clear meaning to end users and address significant challenges for fuselets in the areas of scale, concurrency, authoring, and maintenance. In addition, fuselet workflows begin to capture author intentions about how fuselets will interact and how end-user goals will be achieved meaning is inherent in the collection, at a scale above individual fuselets. The FuseFlow system is founded on well-known techniques for designing business processes workflows to achieve customer satisfaction and for continuously improving the process. At the same time, FuseFlow components interact with existing JBI structures using established APIs, in order to implement the Fuseflow fuselet workflow abstraction.
