Capability Modelling – Case of Logistics Capabilities [chapter]

Wassim Derguech, Sami Bhiri
2013 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
Major related contributions were part of other efforts such as modelling business processes, service description and search requests.  ...  Most of these approaches do not allow to determine intuitively what the exact capability is as well as they do not describe it with proper business features.  ...  The concept of capability is the glue point between services and business processes. A service gives access to a certain capability which can be achieved by a business process.  ...

Enterprise Modeling

Mark S. Fox, Michael Grüninger
1998 The AI Magazine  
This article motivates the need for enterprise models and introduces the concepts of generic and deductive enterprise models.  ...  Enterprise models play a critical role in this integration, enabling better designs for enterprises, analysis of their performance, and management of their operations.  ...  The PIF core ontology consists of the classes and relations used to describe the basic elements of any process.  ...

Semantic representation of context models

Salma Najar, Oumaima Saidani, Manuele Kirsch-Pinheiro, Carine Souveyet, Selmin Nurcan
2009 Proceedings of the 1st Workshop on Context, Information and Ontologies - CIAO '09  
Based on this framework, we consider in this paper a particular application domain, Business Processes, in which the notion of context remains unexplored, although it is required for flexibility and adaptability  ...  We propose, in this paper, an ontology-based context model focusing on this particular domain.  ...  The service profile describes static and dynamic capabilities and requirements of the corresponding service. Thus, similarly to Suraci et al. [26] , Toninelli et al.  ...

Web Service Modeling Ontology [chapter]

Dieter Fensel, Federico Michele Facca, Elena Simperl, Ioan Toma
2011 Semantic Web Services  
To this end, the Web Service Modeling Ontology (WSMO) provides the conceptual underpinning and a formal language for semantically describing all relevant aspects of Web services in order to facilitate  ...  In this paper we describe the overall structure of WSMO by its four main elements: ontologies, which provide the terminology used by other WSMO elements, Web services, which provide access to services  ...  WSMO orchestrations describe what other Web services have to be used or what other goals have to be fulfilled to provide a higher level service, while OWL-S does not model this aspect; WSMO allows the  ...

Modeling ITIL Business Motivation Model in ArchiMate [chapter]

Marco Vicente, Nelson Gama, Miguel Mira da Silva
2013 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
ITIL has become a reference for IT service providers, but is commonly modeled as a process-oriented approach to IT Service Management, often disregarding the remaining EA domains or its motivational elements  ...  Business Motivation Model (BMM).  ...  They can assign people and departments to ITIL roles, and use the models to communicate to stakeholders what is ITIL, what problems does it solve and why are they using it.  ...

The business process modelling ontology

Liliana Cabral, Barry Norton, John Domingue
