Abstract: Numerous stakeholders contribute to building pro-jects, which mainly deal with digital assets during the design phase. Design workflows are project specific and not standardized, therefore digital tools supporting and improving these are not widely present. However, the activities within the workflows are similar and constitute patterns that allow for workflow standardi-zation. We analyze an existing document exchange platform in order to identify those activities and pat-terns in a way which unveils their automation poten-tial. The proposed modular patterns can serve as a base for workflow automation, facilitating the use of tech-nologies such as blockchain and smart contracts.
