Cooperation and Interconnection of Enterprise Process Services


As far as business process automation development is considered, depolyment of process interoperability and interconnection mechanisms becomes inevitable. Actually, these mechanisms are indispensable to co-ordinate business processes within and beyond organisation boundaries, to strength awareness inside virtual enterprises, to facilitate multinational e-transactions, etc. Therefore, thinking and proposing solutions to insure interoperability and interconnection between organisational business processes is becoming a hot topic of research. Actually, existing work co-ordination systems (workflows, shared agenda, co-operative authoring tools, revision and configuration control systems, ...) have been mainly developed to suit the intern needs of enterprises. Thus, most of these systems are not adapted to inter-enterprise co-operation. The aim of this paper is to provide a process interconnexion model, supporting dynamics of organisational process and of their interconnection, and the implementation of this model on our co-operative work environment. This latter is build on a CORBA bus deployed on an intranet/internet network. The paper introduces our process model, our process service model, our process service interconnection model and the whole model implementation on Discobole (DIStributed CO-operation and Business prOcess on LinE).
