Grefen, Paul and Aberer, Karl and Hoffner, Yigal and Ludwig, Heiko (2000) CrossFlow: Cross-Organizational Workflow Management in Dynamic Virtual Enterprises. [Report]

open access
Abstract:In this report, we present the approach to cross-organizational workflow
management of the CrossFlow project. CrossFlow is a European research
project aiming at the support of cross-organizational workflows in dynamic
virtual enterprises. The cooperation in these virtual enterprises is based on
dynamic service outsourcing specified in electronic contracts. Service enactment
is performed by dynamically linking the workflow management infrastructures
of the involved organizations. Extended service enactment support is provided in the form of cross-organizational transaction management and process control, advanced quality of service monitoring, and support for high-level flexibility in service enactment. CrossFlow technology is realized on top of a commercial workflow management platform and applied in two real-world scenarios in the contexts of a logistics and an insurance company.
