Business Rules and Decision Processes in Mediated Business Coordination

Zheng Zhao, Virginia Dignum, Frank Dignum

Business coordination is a very active research area, in which the decision-making process of an enterprise is non-trivial. In this paper, we focus on coordination process that involves a third party or mediator, which we call Mediated Business Coordination (MBC). We argue that business rules play an important role in the decision processes involved in MBC. We describe the decision processes involved in MBC, show how business rules influence the decision-making of enterprises, and propose to model and simulate the decision processes using agents.
