Coordination and configuration requirements in a virtual enterprise

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Coordination is a determinant element in Virtual Enterprises. Proper coordination policies supported by flexible coordination mechanisms are necessary to ensure the cooperation among partner enterprises. The large diversity of scenarios and operating policies suggest a flexible and configurable approach to coordination. The supporting mechanisms and approaches developed in the workflow management and business process modeling areas are among the most used in this domain. Finally the motivation for a hierarchical coordination approach is introduced.
