Abstract

Nowadays, enterprises have been pushed up the rate of industrial transformation to high level products and services. The capability to agilely respond to new market demands became a strategic pillar for enterprises survival. It leads to the necessity of create mechanisms to allow enterprises to combine forces to compete jointly in the market, in order to raise their own added value and to become specialist in niche activities. But to unite forces, enterprises must exchange information/knowledge between them. A semantic problem emerges when the same representation of a thing can have differentmeanings to different applications and enterprises. It can be a disabler for information exchange and its interpretation. The Semantic Web Service concept emerges as a solution to facilitate Web Services description and consequently discovery tasks, unifying the domain services. Moreover, the data integration between concepts can be achieved trough mappings establishment between Web Services elements. However, a solution that allows to map Web Service elements to semantic concepts represented using OWL is still missing. To face this issue, a model-driven approach supported by a mapping tool is here presented with the aim of facilitate the information exchange trough the establishment of mappings between enterprises services models and the domain reference lexicon.
