ASSESSING VOML FRAMEWORK IN THE LIGHT OF MODELLING LANGUAGE CRITERIA FOR VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS

NOOR JEHAN RAJPER

Abstract


Virtual Organization Modelling Language (VOML) is a formal framework for specifying Virtual Organizations (VOs) and their Virtual Breeding Environments (VBEs). It consists of three sublanguages: (a) VO-Structural language (VO-S for short), that specifies structural aspects of VOs and VBEs, (2) VO-Operational (VO-O) language specifies operational aspect of VOs out of VO-S descriptions that are closer to underlying execution environment, (3) VO-Reconfiguration (VO-R) language allows both of these models to be reconfigured such that the models can be adapted and evolved to the changing business environment. In this paper the VOML framework is assessed for its suitability for modelling different requirements specific to VOs domain. The framework is assessed against criteria defined for modelling language of VOs as laid out in prequel and against ARCON reference model.
