Interoperability in Enterprises Networks: A Characterisation and Analysis Approach
Interoperability problems which can occur during the collaboration between several enterprises can endanger this collaboration. Consequently, an enterprise manager needs tools in order to analyze rapidly the enterprise network and then become able to anticipate interoperability problems. Thus, the proposed approach in this paper is based on the specification of properties, representing interoperability requirements, and their analysis on enterprise models. Due to the conceptual limits of existing modeling languages, formalizing these requirements and intending to translate them under the form of properties need to add conceptual enrichments to these languages.
