Negotiations Framework for Monitoring the Sustainability of Interoperability Solutions

  title={Negotiations Framework for Monitoring the Sustainability of Interoperability Solutions},
  author={Carlos Coutinho and Adina Cretan and Ricardo Jardim-Gonçalves},
  booktitle={International Workshop on Enterprise Interoperability},
The competition inherent to globalisation has led enterprises to gather in nests of specialised business providers with the purpose of building better applications and provide more complete solutions. This, added to the improvements on the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), led to a paradigm shift from product-centrism to service-centrism and to the need to communicate and interoperate. Traditional segments like banking, insurance and aerospace subcontract a large number of… 

A Multi-agent Based Negotiation System for Re-establishing Enterprise Interoperability in Collaborative Networked Environments

A system for promoting sustainable interoperability between enterprises involved in complex networked environments through multi-level negotiation, communication and information sharing based on a multi-agent system architecture that applies rule-based negotiation at various organizational levels.

A negotiation approach to support interoperability in a collaborative manufacturing environment

A multi-agent negotiation model, able to coordinate several negotiations taking place in parallel among multiple participants, is proposed, and the negotiation strategy for evaluating and generating offers and the protocol for sending the offers to the other agents are described.

NEGOSEIO: framework for the sustainability of model-oriented enterprise interoperability

Dissertation to obtain the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical and Computer Engineering(Industrial Information Systems)

Computing the Strategies Alignment in Collaborative Networks

The model proposed allows researchers to formally identify the aligned strategies, in order to improve the enterprises’ objectives and, consequently, the network performance.

Automated Negotiation with Multi-agent Systems in Business Processes

This paper presents the design and implementation of a collaborative multi-agent system for automated negotiation processes occurring in dynamic networked environments. The focus is given to a

Definition and Evaluation of Data Quality: User-Oriented Data Object-Driven Approach to Data Quality Assessment

A data object-driven approach to data quality evaluation based on 3 main components: data object, data quality specification and the process of data quality measuring is proposed, which ensures data quality analysis depending on the use-case.

User-Oriented Approach to Data Quality Evaluation

A new data object-driven approach to data quality evaluation was applied to open data sets, analysing their quality and highlighting 3 advantages: a graphical data quality model allows the definition of data quality by non-IT and non-data quality experts as the presented diagrams are easy to read, create and modify.



Harmonising technologies in conceptual models representation

A platform for the harmonisation of technologies used in the representation and implementation of conceptual models is presented, showing how different standard models and technologies can be unified for industrial benefits, enabling organisations to take the most from all of them.

Sustainable systems' interoperability: A reference model for seamless networked business

Concepts from the complex systems science are drawn and a formal model on seamless networked business for sustainable systems interoperability in dynamic networks is proposed.
