More and more traditional manufacturing companies form or join inter-organizational networks to bundle their physical products with related services to offer superior value propositions to their customers. Some of these product-related services can be digitized completely and thus fully delivered electronically. Other services require the physical integration of external factors, but can still be coordinated electronically. In both cases companies and consumers face the problem of discovering…

An valuation methodology and framework for semantic web services technology

This dissertation defines a general methodology and framework for SWS technology evaluation as well as concrete benchmarks to assess the functional scope and performance of various approaches.

An Ontology-Based Natural Language Service Discovery Engine - Design and Experimental Evaluation

In a series of experiments, the experiments indicate that Themis-S, incorporating WordNet as a general purpose ontology, can outperform systems applying syntactic information retrieval models such as the Vector Space Model (VSM) or the Probabilistic Relevance Model (PRM).

Total Cost of Service Life: The Need for Decision Support in Selecting, Comparing and Orchestrating Services

This paper strives to promote research-in-progress for a method based on the TCO concept and on insights from capital budgeting in investment theory to support service consumers in selecting a specific service, in comparing several functionally similar services, and finally in evaluating complete service orchestrations.

Structured Collaborative Tagging: Is It Practical for Web Service Discovery?

One of the key requirements for the success of Service Oriented Architecture is discoverability of Web services. However, public services suffer from the lack of metadata. Current methods to provide

European Conference on Information Systems ( ECIS ) 1-1-2010 An Ontology-Based Natural Language Service Discovery Engine – Design and Experimental Evaluation

In a series of experiments, the experiments indicate that Themis-S, incorporating WordNet as a general purpose ontology, can outperform systems applying syntactic information retrieval models such as the Vector Space Model (VSM) or the Probabilistic Relevance Model (PRM).

Evaluation of Structured Collaborative Tagging for Web Service Matchmaking

Relations between description schema (SWS, tags, flat document) and matchmaking heuristics, and performance of retrieval in different search scenarios are explained and threats to results credibility stemming from partial control of the tags collection process are identified.

WSColab: Structured Collaborative Tagging for Web Service Matchmaking

Results show that the proposed approach can be successfully used in both Web service tagging and querying, and is introduced as a new technique for structured collaborative tagging to improve Web service descriptions.

This thesis tackles problems with algorithms that can automatically compare process information stemming from various sources and enable the detection of contradictions between the sources and improve the ability of organizations to monitor their compliance to rules and regulations.

Spotting Terminology Deficiencies in Process Model Repositories

This paper presents an automatic approach to identify synonym and homonym words in model repositories and challenges the approach against three model collection from practice that are assumed to have different levels of terminological consistency.

Finding e-Service Offerings by Computer-Supported Customer Need Reasoning

A rigorous approach that models how companies can electronically offer packages of independent services (service bundles) to support prospective Website visitors in defining and buying service bundles that fit their specific needs and demands is outlined.

Value Webs: Ontology-Based Bundling of Real-World Services

This article discusses a component-based ontology for real-world services, associated methods and tools for visual modelling, and knowledge-based configuration of service bundles, with applications from online events organization and the energy industry.

The e3service ontology is proposed, which offers constructs from service marketing, but in a computational way, such that automated reasoning support can be developed to match consumer needs with IT-services.

Web Service Modeling Ontology

Along with introducing the main elements of WSMO, this paper provides a logical language for defining formal statements in WSMO together with some motivating examples from practical use cases which shall demonstrate the benefits of Semantic Web Services.

A shared service terminology for online service provisioning

Different meanings of service-related terms in the three communities are introduced, and a real-world case study is used to show how all three perspectives and terminologies need to be joined with each other for the realization of collaborative e-Commerce scenarios for service offerings on the Semantic Web.

Software-aided Service Bundling : Intelligent Methods and Tools for Graphical Service Modeling

Services, such as insurances, transport, medical treatments and more, have been subject to extensive research business science for decennia. When services are offered, bought or consumed online, we

DAML-S: Semantic Markup for Web Services

The overall structure of the ontology, the service profile for advertising services, and the process model for the detailed description of the operation of services are described, which compare DAML-S with several industry efforts to define standards for characterizing services on the Web.

Towards a Precise Understanding of Service Properties

This thesis addresses the question of what would be a domain independent taxonomy that is capable of representing the non-functional properties of conventional, electronic and web services and provides a theoretical basis for automated service discovery, comparison, selection, and substitution.

Four strategies for the age of smart services.

Citing examples such as Heidelberger Druckmaschinen's Internet-connected printing presses and Eaton Electrical's home-monitoring service, the authors demonstrate how a product that can report its status back to its maker represents an opportunity for the manufacturer to cultivate richer, longer-term relationships with customers.

Contemporary Web Service Discovery Mechanisms

This paper critically presents the latest methods, architectures, models and concerns that have arisen in the Web Service Discovery area.
