Dynamic virtual enterprise integration via business rule enhanced semantic service composition framework
MetadataShow full item record
Effective collaboration is crucial to the success of Collaborative Virtual Enterprise (CVE), an emerging business paradigm driven by the increasing trend of globalization. In this paper, we adopt a service-oriented architecture for enterprise integration and collaboration based on Web Service standards. In order to tackle the technical challenge associated with the dynamic formation of business workflows, a service composition framework is presented and analyzed in this paper. Comparing with existing composition systems, our framework enjoys two major improvements: (1) the description of each Web Service is enhanced with rule-based modeling of the essential business logic behind the service interface; and (2) the di-vide-and-conquer strategy is explored in our framework to handle complex service composition tasks through a hierarchi-cal composition architecture. A PC manufacturing prototyping system further presents a concrete demonstration of our framework in practical applications.
