PowerWF is a Visual PowerShell development tool allowing users to build PowerShell scripts as workflows, which are similar to a flowchart or Visio diagram.  Once created, workflows can be deployed as applications, run as a scheduled task, or back to PowerShell as a script.  You can even push data to System Center with the click of a button.
