Smart Space / Workflow Question

Hi,

I am new to Alfresco and I am trying to wrap my head around how best to setup a smart space with workflow. I understand how to apply content rules to spaces, but I am wondering how best to set up the space structure for something like this. A single document (Excel spreadsheet) has to pass through several departments and each department is responsible for filling out specific information. I am gathering I will need to create a space with many subfolders (subspaces? nodes? Not sure what to call them) for each step along the way?

I would image the directory structure to look something like this:

/projectname
      /workflow
            /1_kickoff
            /2_site survey
            /3_create BOM
            /4_procurement
            /5_assembly
            /6_testing
            /7_shipping
            /8_installation
            /9_completion
      /documents
            /installation worksheet
            /other documents
   

Am I way off base here or is that how you would setup a workflow for a document that has 9 steps? Also, what would be the easiest way to tell what state the document is at in the workflow?

Thanks in advance for any help.
