Abstract

In collaborative commerce, task groups are often formed from experts of several companies to perform collaborative projects. The proper position assignments to different staff members from multi-organizations have become an important task for the success of projects. This paper proposes a collaborative framework with two components for companies to assign professionals to different roles in forming a group to complete a task. The first component is further divided into 2 parts. The first part uses a tree competency model to define competencies of staff (agents) as well as role requirements. The second part contains a tree similarity algorithm and bonus point algorithm to support the role assignment. The adoption of clustering techniques and negotiation protocol between team requester and multi-agent providers are the second component to support the group role assignments. Preliminary experiments have been performed with some interesting results.
