Completion Processing

Engine processing is triggered whenever a process activity completes and calls the Workflow Engine API. The engine then attempts to execute (or mark for deferred execution) all activities that are dependent on the completed activity.

Note: A process as a whole can complete but still contain activities that were visited but not yet completed. For example, a completed process may contain a standard Wait activity that is not complete because the designated length of time to wait has not yet elapsed. When the process as a whole completes, the Workflow Engine marks these incomplete activities as having a status of COMPLETE and a result of #FORCE. This distinction is important when you review your process status through the Workflow Monitor.
