Graph and workflow plotting with R

By Derek Nedveck

Over at my place of employment, we’ve been working on defining our process / workflow. Part of this work is creating a visual representation of our workflow. Currently the visualization is done in Visio (or some other gross, non-scriptable program), but I figured this would be better suited to automated means, especially when I found out that our dept was already using something called a RACI table. So this is my excuse to take a naive dive into workflow plotting.

I’m likely going to be getting into the grid graphics engine, and DiagrammeR … or not, the only thing that’s for sure is that I’ll have gifs.

dive in!
