Abstract

This paper presents a knowledge-based methodology dedicated to automate the specification of virtual organization collaborative processes. Our approach takes as input knowledge about collaboration coming from a collaborative platform called 6napse developed by EBM WebSourcing, and produces as output a BPMN (Business Process Modeling Notation) compliant process. The 6napse platform provides knowledge to instantiate the ontology to contribute to the collaborative process definition. The ontology is in the collaborative network domain, consisting in (i) collaboration attributes, (ii) description of participants and (iii) collaborative processes inspired from the enterprise Process Handbook (MIT).

Keywords

Ontology based methods and tools for interoperability Tools for interoperability Open and interoperable platforms supporting collaborative businesses
