  • Collaborative Process Cartography Deduction Based on Collaborative Ontology and Model Transformation

    Wenxin Mu, Frédérick Bénaben et Hervé Pingaud. « Collaborative Process Cartography Deduction Based on Collaborative Ontology and Model Transformation ». In : Inf. Sci. 334 (mars 2016). P. 83--102. ISSN : 0020-0255. DOI : 10.1016/j.ins.2015.11.033.
    With an increasing background in inter-enterprise collaboration and interoperability, the automatic deduction of collaborative business processes is increasingly being viewed as a crucial research subject. The common solution is believed to involve either semantic ontologies or metamodeling, which can be combined with semantic algorithms or transformation rules. However, from the viewpoint of enterprises, the modeling of collaborative processes should be software integrated and can be changed to workflow. The design of the targeted collaborative process model does not fit the need. This has led to a lack of concepts and transformation rules for the ontology or metamodel. In this paper, a new collaborative process model called collaborative process cartography is designed. Related collaborative ontology and its knowledge-expanding rules have also been updated. Collaborative ontology contains essential concepts for the collaborative situation and includes the rules and algorithms for process deduction. A prototype for the supporting tools is also provided.

  • Supporting interoperability of collaborative networks through engineering of a service-based Mediation Information System (MISE 2.0)

    Références :
    The Mediation Information System Engineering project is currently finishing its second iteration (MISE 2.0). The main objective of this scientific project is to provide any emerging collaborative situation with methods and tools to deploy a Mediation Information System (MIS). MISE 2.0 aims at defining and designing a service-based platform, dedicated to initiating and supporting the interoperability of collaborative situations among potential partners. This MISE 2.0 platform implements a model-driven engineering approach to the design of a service-oriented MIS dedicated to supporting the collaborative situation. This approach is structured in three layers, each providing their own key innovative points: (i) the gathering of individual and collaborative knowledge to provide appropriate collaborative business behaviour (key point: knowledge management, including semantics, exploitation and capitalisation), (ii) deployment of a mediation information system able to computerise the previously deduced collaborative processes (key point: the automatic generation of collaborative workflows, including connection with existing devices or services) (iii) the management of the agility of the obtained collaborative network of organisations (key point: supervision of collaborative situations and relevant exploitation of the gathered data). MISE covers business issues (through BPM), technical issues (through an SOA) and agility issues of collaborative situations (through EDA).

    Nicolas Boissel-Dallier, Frédérick Bénaben, Jean-Pierre Lorré et Hervé Pingaud. « Mediation information system engineering based on hybrid service composition mechanism ». In : Journal of Systems and Software 108 (oct. 2015). P. 39--59. ISSN : 01641212. DOI : 10.1016/j.jss.2015.05.064.
    Business-IT alignment nowadays has become crucial, with the expansion of service-based information systems and the need to collaborate with external partners. This research work therefore presents a hybrid service composition mechanism coupling logic-based and syntactic matchmaking of services and messages to transform a business process into an executable workflow. To meet the business requirements, this mechanism is based on both top-down and bottom-up approaches using available technical services and a generic semantic profile as pivot model. Whereas the service matchmaking focuses on the functional coverage of the generated workflow, the messageone generates the message transformation needed.

  • Towards a better management of complex emergencies through crisis management meta-modelling

    Matthieu Lauras, Sébastien Truptil et Frédérick Bénaben. « Towards a better management of complex emergencies through crisis management meta-modelling ». In : Disasters 39.4 (1er oct. 2015). P. 687--714. ISSN : 1467-7717. DOI : 10.1111/disa.12122.
    Managing complex emergency situations is a challenging task, mainly due to the heterogeneity of the partners involved and the critical nature of such events. Whatever approach is adopted to support this objective, one unavoidable issue is knowledge management. In the context of our research project, gathering, formalising and exploiting all the knowledge and information about a given crisis situation is a critical requirement. This paper presents some research results concerning this specific topic: from a theoretical point of view, the generic dimensions of crisis characterisation are defined, while from a technical point of view, we describe a software solution able to collect that knowledge (based on meta-models and ontologies). This is used to confront the characteristics of the situation (context) with characteristics of the resources (relief system) in order to design a suitable response. Finally, an illustrative example concerning a crash between a tanker truck and a train is described.

  • Event-cloud platform to support decision-making in emergency management

    Matthieu Lauras, Frédérick Bénaben, Sébastien Truptil et Aurélie Charles. « Event-cloud platform to support decision-making in emergency management ». In : Information Systems Frontiers 17.4 (août 2015). P. 857--869. ISSN : 1387-3326, 1572-9419. DOI : 10.1007/s10796-013-9475-0.
    The challenge of this paper is to underline the capability of an Event-Cloud Platform to support efficiently an emergency situation. We chose to focus on a nuclear crisis use case. The proposed approach consists in modeling the business processes of crisis response on the one hand, and in supporting the orchestration and execution of these processes by using an Event-Cloud Platform on the other hand. This paper shows how the use of Event-Cloud techniques can support crisis management stakeholders by automatizing non-value added tasks and by directing decision-makers on what really requires their capabilities of choice. If Event-Cloud technology is a very interesting and topical subject, very few research works have considered this to improve emergency management. This paper tries to fill this gap by considering and applying these technologies on a nuclear crisis use-case.

  • A methodology proposal for collaborative business process elaboration using a model-driven approach

    Business process management (BPM) principles are commonly used to improve processes within an organisation. But they can equally be applied to supporting the design of an Information System (IS). In a collaborative situation involving several partners, this type of BPM approach may be useful to support the design of a Mediation Information System (MIS), which would ensure interoperability between the partners' ISs (which are assumed to be service oriented). To achieve this objective, the first main task is to build a collaborative business process cartography. The aim of this article is to present a method for bringing together collaborative information and elaborating collaborative business processes from the information gathered (by using a collaborative situation framework, an organisational model, an informational model, a functional model and a metamodel and by using model transformation rules).

  • Event-driven agility of interoperability during the Run-time of collaborative processes

    Anne-Marie Barthe-Delanoë, Sébastien Truptil, Frédérick Bénaben et Hervé Pingaud. « Event-driven agility of interoperability during the Run-time of collaborative processes ». In : Decision Support Systems 59 (mars 2014). P. 171--179. ISSN : 0167-9236. DOI : 10.1016/j.dss.2013.11.005.
    The modem business environment tends to involve a large network of heterogeneous people, devices and organizations that engage in collaborative processes among themselves. Given the nature of this type of collaboration and the high degree of interoperability between partner Information Systems, these processes need to be agile in order to respond to changes in context, which may occur at any time during the collaborative situation. The objective is to build a Mediation Information System (MIS), in support of collaborative situations, whose architecture must be (i) built to be relevant to the collaborative situation under consideration, (ii) more easily integrated into the existing systems, and (iii) sufficiently agile, through its awareness of the environment and of process events, and through the way it reacts to events detected as being relevant. To apply agility mechanisms, it is crucial to detect the significant events that will lead to a subsequent evolution of the situation (detection step). Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) is used to design the structure of the part of the system that is in charge of MIS agility. This architecture takes the events into account, manages them and, if needed, uses them to trigger the adaptation of the MIS. We have defined a means to monitor the evolution of the situation. If relevant changes are detected, and if the situation does not evolve in the expected way, an adaptation is proposed. It is concluded that the principles of detection and adaptation, combined with the responsiveness of the system (provided by the automation of transitions), and based on Event Driven Architecture principles, together provide the agility required for collaborative processes.

    The Mediation Information System Engineering (MISE Project) aims at providing collaborating organisations with a mediation information system (MIS) in charge of supporting interoperability of a collaborative network. The MISE proposes an overall MIS design method according to a model-driven approach, based on model transformations. This MIS is in charge of managing (i) information, (ii) functions and (iii) processes among the information systems (IS) of partner organisations involved in the network. Semantic issues are accompanying this triple objective: How to deal with information reconciliation? How to ensure the matching between business functions and technical services? How to identify workflows among business processes? This article aims first at presenting the MISE approach, second at defining the semantic gaps along the MISE approach and third at describing some past, current and future research works that deal with these issues. Finally and as a conclusion, the very design-oriented' previous considerations are confronted with 'runtime' requirements.

  • Knowledge-based system for collaborative process specification

    This paper presents an ontology-based approach for the design of a collaborative business process model (CBP). This CBP is considered as a specification of needs in order to build a collaboration information system (CIS) for a network of organizations. The study is a part of a model-driven engineering approach of the CIS in a specific enterprise interoperability framework that will be summarised. An adaptation of the Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) is used to represent the CBP model. We develop a knowledge-based system (KbS) which is composed of three main parts: knowledge gathering, knowledge representation and reasoning, and collaborative business process modelling. The first part starts from a high abstraction level where knowledge from business partners is captured. A collaboration ontology is defined in order to provide a structure to store and use the knowledge captured. In parallel, we try to reuse generic existing knowledge about business processes from the MIT Process Handbook repository. This results in a collaboration process ontology that is also described. A set of rules is defined in order to extract knowledge about fragments of the CBP model from the two previous ontologies. These fragments are finally assembled in the third part of the KbS. A prototype of the KbS has been developed in order to implement and support this approach. The prototype is a computer-aided design tool of the CBP. In this paper, we will present the theoretical aspects of each part of this KbS as well as the tools that we developed and used in order to support its functionalities. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V.

    In a collaborative context, the integration of industrial partners deeply depends on the ability to use a collaborative architecture to interact efficiently. In this paper, we propose to tackle this point according to the fact that partners of the collaboration respect the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) paradigm. We propose to design such a collaborative architecture according to Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) principles. We aim at using business models to design a logical model of a solution (logical architecture) as a principal step to reach the final collaborative solution. This paper presents the theoretical aspects of this subject and the dedicated transformation rules. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
