An activity is a task that needs to be accomplished within a defined period of time or by a deadline to work towards work-related goals. Activities can be linked together using rules to create dependencies.
An activity is the core of a business process, the work being done in order to reach a goal.
An activity holds several different attributes. Each attribute has three state-values, It can have rules to other activities, It can have a name, role(s) assigned to it, a description, and be part of groups and a level.

All the rules are based on these values.
