  • 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).

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

    Wenxin Mu, Frédérick Bénaben et Hervé Pingaud. « A methodology proposal for collaborative business process elaboration using a model-driven approach ». In : Enterprise Information Systems 9.4 (19 mai 2015). P. 349--383. DOI : 10.1080/17517575.2013.771410.
    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).
