Abstract

In an E-service environment, workflow involves not only a single organization but also a number of business partners. Therefore, workflow interoperability in such an environment is an important issue for enacting workflows. In this paper, we introduce our approach of using workflow views as a fundamental support for E-service workflow interoperability and for controlled (sub-) workflows visibility to external parties. We present a meta-model of workflow views and their semantics with example usage. We develop an interoperation model based on workflow views, with a supply-chain E-service cross-organization workflow example. We also propose an implementation of workflow view and cross-organizational interoperability based on contemporary Web service [14] technology, with respect to our E-ADOME workflow engine.
