H. Cho, B.
Kulvatunyou, H. Jeong, A. Jones: Using business process specifications
agents to integrate a scenario-driven supply chain.
chain scenario is presented, which uses an integrating framework for
chain operations among trading partners in a B2B environment using the
of business process specifications and agent technology. The behaviour
enterprise applications of each partner is modelled as agent concepts
Petri-nets. The business system of each partner is separated into a
a public component where the collaboration between the partners is
the public parts. The paper focuses on the request for quote
interactions in a
three stage B2B environment (Customer – Manufacturer – Supplier) and
address any of the other required B2B activities. The workflow of the
chain planning process is presented in some details. An implementation
of the integration
framework shows the use of the different technologies (agent based
and modelling of business process specifications using UML) and their
see these concepts and models as a starting point for the formalisation
structured approach for B2B supply chain integration and implementation.
