With advances of several enabling technologies such as web services, ontology, and semantic web, the business environments are shifting to an open business environment where business applications autonomously share information and coordinate decisions with each other without any human intervention. This open business environment provides supply chains with the opportunity to generate executable supply chain plans, mitigating the inefficiencies of traditional supply chains such as bullwhip effect that is caused by the lack of information sharing. This paper aims to develop business process models that reflect realistic business scenarios and enable integrated supply chain planning in the open business environment.
