I need to graphically represent transition between different states. The states list is dynamic. At one time only one state can be active. We have a product which gives the user ability to define manufacturing cycle.
For example One user may define the cycle as Design->Engineering->Manufacturing->Sales. Other user may define as Product Design->Product Engineering->Process Engineering->Manufacturing->Sales and Service.
We need to graphically represent the cycle created by user and also present that in which stage is it currently. For example if it is in Product engineering then we need to highlight it. Please suggest if any good examples are available for reference
For example presenting this cycle to user after he has created one (the one below is not accepted by the management), stating that its not a very good way to represent. They want some better way to represent the same
