Title: An architecture for E-cooperating business agents
Issue Date: 2002
Abstract: The task of coordinating business agents to accomplish complex goals, which could not beaccomplished by any of the agents on its own, is a complex one. This paper addresses theproblem of coordinating companies within a general architecture for e-cooperation. Thisarchitecture articulates the interoperation of business process over the Internet with varieddegrees of security requirements. The implementation infrastructure is used to support thecooperative design and construction of production facilities (spot-welding lines, assemblylines). These are typically complex systems, which are made of several subsystems (robots,machines, cells), that are designed and built by different companies in different countries.Design and construction involves several types of companies, from OEMs to smallengineering houses. With this architecture we aim at improving the otherwise time consumingtask of coordinating their activities, especially when models (geometric, process, andworkflow models), machine programs, documentation, etc. must be exchanged frequently andsecurely.
