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… Expand
An valuation methodology and framework for semantic web services technology
TLDR
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. Expand
An Ontology-Based Natural Language Service Discovery Engine - Design and Experimental Evaluation
TLDR
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). Expand
Total Cost of Service Life: The Need for Decision Support in Selecting, Comparing and Orchestrating Services
TLDR
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 provideExpand
European Conference on Information Systems ( ECIS ) 1-1-2010 An Ontology-Based Natural Language Service Discovery Engine – Design and Experimental Evaluation
Around the globe, we are witnessing a transition from a primarily goods-based to a service-based economy. At the same time, advances in information technology provide significant opportunities forExpand
Evaluation of Structured Collaborative Tagging for Web Service Matchmaking
TLDR
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. Expand
WSColab: Structured Collaborative Tagging for Web Service Matchmaking
TLDR
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. Expand

  • Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing
  • 2018
TLDR
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. Expand
Spotting Terminology Deficiencies in Process Model Repositories
TLDR
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. Expand
A design research study on enhancing creativity - The case of developing product-service bundles
TLDR
It is argued that this concept fosters information access that accords with the creative nature of a product development process and furthering creative thinking through the provision of three distinct types of stimuli that actuates new entry points in a person’s cognitive network. Expand
