We seek to elevate autonomic computing from infrastructure to process level. Different aspects of autonomic computing -self configuring, self healing, self optimizing and self aware are studied for Autonomic Web Processes (AWPs) with the help of a supply chain process scenario. Existing technologies and steps needed to shorten the gap from current process management systems to AWPs are studied in this paper. The behavior of AWPs is controlled by policies defined by users. Sympathetic and

A key advantage for elevating autonomic computing to a process level is that the trade-offs can be more evident because the process components map more readily to business functions. As the benefits from creating AWPs are manifold for both business and scientific processes, we aim to collaborate with our research partners in the industry and the academia to realize this vision. Our future work includes creating a research prototype that supports AWPs and creating a theoretical model to represent all aspects of AWPs.
