Abstract

Advances in computer networking technology and open system standards are making the creation and management of virtual enterprises feasible. A virtual enterprise is a temporary consortium of autonomous, diverse, and possibly geographically dispersed organizations that pool their resources to meet short-term objectives and exploit fast-changing market trends. For a virtual enterprise to succeed, its business processes must be automated, and its startup costs must be minimized. In this paper we describe a formal framework for modeling and reasoning about interactions in a virtual enterprise. Such a framework will form the basis for tools that provide automated support for creation and operation of virtual enterprises.
