Abstract

In systems development process, E-business modelling as a type of conceptual modelling is based on value chains concepts. The main goal of e-business modelling is to reach agreement among stakeholders regarding the question “who is offering what of value to whom and expects what of value in return”. For e-business modelling, there are some methodologies focused on the descriptive part. The e3 value methodology, that it should be extended into a realistic and actual one, is a graphical approach to design an e-commerce value chain. The e3 value methodology supposes trustworthy behaviours of business partners. So, we would like to lead the e3 value methodology, into a realistic environment including opportunistic and fraudulent behaviours of partners. For this meaning, we can use “requirements analysis” and “conceptual modelling” techniques resulting a design methodology for control procedures in e-commerce from the value constellations perspective.
