Integrating Semantic Web Services and Business Process Management : A Real Use Case ?

  title={Integrating Semantic Web Services and Business Process Management : A Real Use Case ?},
  author={Christian Drumm and Jens Lemcke and Kioumars Namiri},
In this paper we aim to investigate how semantic Web services can improve standard business process management tools. Using a standard SAP process in the area of logistics as an example, we show the limitations of current approaches, both during designand runtime. Based on this investigation we will present a new solution enabling the automation of certain task in the process of creating cross organizational business processes using ontologies and Semantic Web Services. 

Figures from this paper

Semantic business process space for intelligent management of sales order business processes
A novel approach that will reduce the time and cost necessary for the development of a new business process in a fast-changing environment and provide practitioners with useful insights into the proper implementation of the SBPM.
Automated Planning of Process Models –Towards a Semantic-based Approach
This chapter introduces a novel approach that is suitable especially for the Semantic-based Planning of process models, which focuses on the semantic reasoning, which is necessary in order to construct control structures, such as decision nodes, which are vital elements ofprocess models.
On the Social Network Based Semantic Annotation of Conceptual Models
An approach that links information on semantic annotations to information available from social network applications so that the addition of semantic annotations can be facilitated in terms of communication support, economic benefits, and technical opportunities is proposed.
SEMPA – Ein Ansatz des Semantischen Prozessmanagements zur Planung von Prozessmodellen
SEMPA is introduced, an approach for the partly automatic planning of process models that creates process models including control structures and is able to cope with complex and numerical input and output parameters of actions.


Automated Business-to-Business Integration of a Logistics Supply Chain Using Semantic Web Services Technology
A demonstrator system which applies semantic web services technology to business-to-business integration, focussing specifically on a logistics supply chain, able to handle all stages of the service lifecycle.
A software framework for matchmaking based on semantic web technology
This paper investigates how Semantic and Web Services technologies can be used to support service advertisement and discovery in e-commerce with the design and implementation of a service matchmaking prototype which uses a DAML-S based ontology and a Description Logic reasoner to compare ontology based service descriptions.
Configuration based workflow composition
This work presents a constrained object model for workflow composition, based upon a metamodel for workflows and ontologies for processes and data flows, and proves the feasibility of such an approach, with some advantages and drawbacks compared to logical based techniques.
A Constrained Object Model for Configuration Based Workflow Composition
The purpose of this document is to formally specify the constrained object model involved in ongoing experiments and research using the Z specification language.
Towards semantic service selection for B2B integration
A solution for a dynamic (at run-time) web service selection based on semantic interpretation of offered service capabilities and the parameters specifying the actual request is introduced.
A Survey of Schema-Based Matching Approaches
This paper presents a new classification of schema-based matching techniques that builds on the top of state of the art in both schema and ontology matching and distinguishes between approximate and exact techniques at schema-level; and syntactic, semantic, and external techniques at element- and structure-level.
