Title: A Semantic-Mediation Architecture for Interoperable Supply-Chain Applications
Published: November 10, 2008
Abstract: This paper presents a semantic-mediation architecture that enables standards-based interoperability between heterogeneous supply-chain applications. The architecture was implemented using a state-of-the-art semantic-mediation toolset for design-time and run-time integration tasks. The design-time tools supported a domain ontology definition, message annotations, message schema transformations, and reconciliation rules specifications. The run-time tools performed exchanges, transformations, and reconciliations of the messages. The architecture supports an supply-chain integration scenario where heterogeneous automotive manufacturing supply-chain applications exchange inventory information.
