Abstract

This paper discusses the technical and corresponding logical modelling issues arising out of Collaborative Business Process Engineering (CBPE). These modelling issues are based on the technologies of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web Services (WS). Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) is applied in this paper in order to present the proposed model of collaboration across multiple organisations. The uniqueness of this research, and the ensuing discussion, is that the collaboration between multiple organizations is envisaged through a ‘yellow pages’ and not through the known business-to-business (B2B) interaction. As a result, the collaboration discussed in this paper requires applications to publish, locate and communicate with each other across disparate technical platforms.
