I would replace "any" with "all", in first sentence, and insert "all" 
before "accessibility" in front of second sentence.
Also, how does a function "occur" (ambiguous)?   Do you mean a function is 
"invoked" or "called"?    Also, I'm still confused
as to how a "workflow" completes.   A process following a workflow may 
complete (according to the rules of the workflow)?
