Best way to implement an approval rule engine

Hello All,

 

Need some help in designing a workflow.

 

Requirement:

A simple sequential approval workflow that has to pick approvers based on the requestor and the amount requested.

 

For Ex:

Requestor<1000 (all approvers)1000-2000 (all approvers)>2000 (all approvers)
User1User2User2, User3User3, User4
User5User3User3, User4User3, User4, User6

 

The number and who approves depends on the requester and also the range.

 

My idea was to maintain this exact table in a list with the columns as multi user columns.  Query this column value into a collection.  Loop through and set the approvals.

 

Q1 - is this an ideal way?

Q2 - will the collection always have the users in the same order as I enter in the multi user column?

 

Thanks for your inputs.

 

Cheers,

Sumit
