Abstract:Current e-business technology enables the execution of increasingly
complex coordination processes that link IT services of different
companies. Successful design of cross-organizational coordination
processes requires the mutual alignment of the coordination process with
a commercial business case. There is however a large conceptual gap
between a commercial business case and a coordination process. The
business case is stated in terms of commercial transactions, but the coordination
process consists of sequences, choices and iterations of actions
of people and machines that are absent from a business case model; also,
the cardinality of the connections and the frequency and duration of activities
are different in both models. This paper proposes a coordination
process design method that focusses on the the shared physical world
underlying the business case and coordination process. In this physical
world, physical deliveries take place that realize commercial transactions
and that must be coordinated by a coordination process. Physical delivery
models allow us to identify the relevant cardinality, frequency and
duration properties so that we can design the coordination process to
respect these properties. In the case studies we have done so far, a physical
delivery model is the greatest common denominator that we needed
to verify consistency between a business case and a coordination process
model.
