Abstract—The traditional manual way of thesis management is increasingly satisfying the demand of thesis guidance and administrative management in the information age. To improve the traditional manual undergraduate thesis writing, guidance and administrative management process in Southwest University of China, a Role-based access control (RBAC) Workflow model for thesis management is developed. In the RBAC workflow model, role’s authorization to users and permission’s authorization to roles are activated by time-triggered and task-based principle. The thesis management system based on the RBAC Workflow model is available, and this system is evaluated by means of practical application. The comparison results of this system can effectively reduce the workload of undergraduate thesis work, monitor thesis writing and guidance, enhancing the informatization level of undergraduate thesis work massively.

Index Terms—RBAC, Workflow, Thesis management, time-triggered, task-based.
