"This thesis proposes an agent-based workflow model in support of inter-enterprise workflow management. In the proposed model, agent-based technology enables the workflow coordination at both inter- and intra- enterprise levels while semantic Web and Web services based technologies provide intrastructures for messaging, service description, service delivery, workflow ontology, and workflow enactment ... A prototype system is implemented for the purpose of designing and developing role-feasible agents for simulating the formation process of a virtual enterprise."--Abstract.
