Definition: 

Allows for the organizing WorkflowStepSequences into a larger MasterSequence. The WorkflowMasterSequence is a succession of WorkflowStepSequences in which one WorkflowStepSequence precedes the next.

Explanatory Notes: 

A WorkflowMasterSequence is a SimpleCollection that is normally ordered. It allows for blocks WorkflowSteps expressed as a WorkflowStepSequence to be ordered sequentially thereby creating a master sequence that is identified by the WorkflowProcess as the overall ordering for the process.

Example: 
A common example is of a Questionnaire that has multiple blocks (sequences) of InstrumentComponents (InstanceQuestion, Statement, etc.) that are reused in various orders. The U.S. Current Population Survey has a block of standard demographic questions as well as specialized blocks of questions that are fielded periodically generally in a given month (ex. School Enrollment fielded in September). In a data capture multiple instruments might be administered in a certain order. A WorkflowMasterSequence describes this order. Note that in this example successive instruments cannot begin before a previous instrument ends: this would NOT be a SimpleSucession. In a Demographic Surveillance Business Process Model there is BusinessProcess that identifies data quality issues. This BusinessProcess has a WorkflowMasterSequence that includes a succession of WorkflowStepSequences. Each WorkflowStepSequence performs the work of identifying a specific data quality issue. The WorkflowMasterSequence determines the order in which each data quality issue is identified. When the order is consequential the WorkflowMasterSequence isOrdered property is set to true.
