Semantic Web Service Based Framework for Inter-Organizational Business Process Management
To support business and engineering collaboration in the diversified and global markets, enterprises are trying hard to continuously align their actual business processes to response customers’ demands. In this context, a flexible framework for inter-organizational process management is proposed, in which ontologies and semantic web service technologies are used throughout process modeling, implementation and execution. Heterogeneous manufacturing resources are encapsulated as uniform semantic web services, called manufacturing services, which are published, located and combined into executable processes. By means of formally definition of service capacity and as the mediation, business logic and implementation techniques is loosely coupling relationship, so enterprises can collaborate without prior relationship established and adjust their processes on demand.
