It can assist in both the documentation of process pipelines for humans and the execution of data processing pipelines by software agents. The documentation of data processing pipelines that is supported is sufficient to describe provenance chains for either PREMIS or PROV. Also, with this view it is possible to construct a representation of a processing pipeline that can be executed by by a software agent using a service-oriented business process execution language. The view supports the specification of parallel processing as well as sequential processing. For example, it supports the specification of big data map reduce data processing pipelines.
