Workflow - Header vs. Item level
I am looking for some documentation / list of pros and cons of implementing header level workflow vs. item level. I understand that item level is more difficult to implement, but what are the benefits.
We are looking at two types of approval, financial approval and commodity based approval and I would like to understand more before making a decision.

For your requirement,you can go for N step HEader level SC Approval Workflow.I have worked on a similar reqt and the agent determintation can be made flexible based on runtime values thorugh the BADi BBP_WFL_APPROV_BADI.
Advantages of header level WF is that its very flexible.Disadvantage is that some techincal problems require application of OSS notes e.g graphical Preview inconsistent.
I have not worked on Item level WF so cant comment on that.For more info ,pls refer the foll links:
