e-LM allows you to create customised lifecycles (or workflows) for different assets in the system. These lifecycles define the states (or phases) that an asset must go through.
In addition to the existing support you can now define custom lifecycles for features, risks, issues, change requests, attachments and actions.
The image on the right shows an example lifecycle, in this case for managing attachments. Each box represents a state that the attachment can be in and the arrows indicate the transitions between the states. The red arrows show transitions that require specific authorisation.
