Towards Semantic-Based Supply Chain Integration



Nenad Ivezic, Nenad Anicic, Albert T. Jones, Zuran Marjanovic


We describe a novel Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) architecture based on existing B2B standards. We show how such an EAI architecture can use automated reasoning tools to provide application integration support and validation capabilities. We give a description of a transformation approach to help transition from the current XML-Schema syntax-based standards to the new OWL-based semantic standards, which are meant to support supply chain integration. Finally, we outline initial experimental results and point how one existing industrial EAI standard, the OAGIS specification, may be transformed into an OWL-based representation.
