Integrated service systems such as service oriented Manufacturing Grids have become new promising paradigms for enterprises distributed computing and application integration. In such environments, service providers and consumers come together to participate in service engagements in an autonomous way and thus trust problems arise. A lot of research work has been done on the theories and applications of trust and reputation management in this filed. However, the design expertise on trust aware service systems is not well documented yet.
