34 +A workflow is defined as a "set of tasks involved in a procedure along with their interdependencies and their inputs and outputs" (Ailamaki, Ioannidis, & Livny, 1998, p. 1). Data management workflows consist of tasks to be performed and procedures that ensures the consistent performance of the tasks. For example, the objective of file naming convention is to establish patterns of file names for (% style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal;" %)searching and identifying data input (% style="font-size: 14px;" %)and managing data output. A workflow for data input and output will involve defining naming conventions, assigning names to output data, depositing them to appropriate file locations, and creating appropriate annotations. These tasks should follow standard procedures so that data output is managed with consistency, upon which scientific experiments or computational runs will depend to obtain the input data.

36 +Developing workflows for data management needs to define each key process area clearly, which will then be used to identify tasks to be performed and procedures to ensure consistency in performing the tasks.
