Abstract: In earlier work we have developed and tested a scheduling model  in the AIMMS software. In this follow-up contribution we will develop a planning model. Next we will identify the information flow between scheduling model and the planning model. Lastly we will integrate the two models in a straight-forward fashion using run-modes and rolling-horizon methodology. With a case study we prove that the overall strategy aids systematic integration of the two levels, which allows fast optimization of the short-term as well as the long-term decisions without significantly affecting the quality of the solution.

Abstract: The logistics service sector is faced with a growing complexity which needs to be handled by cooperating logistics providers aligning their services in a network. This paper introduces the Logistics Service Engineering and Management platform supporting the Fourth Party Logistics Provider business model that aims at establishing a coordinator of such a network. Hence the idea to employ the service oriented design paradigm at the software and at the business level along with the main features of the platform is presented. Furthermore the basic architecture is explained and a closer look at some implementation details is presented.

Abstract: Workflow technology is established in the business domain for several years. This fact suggests the need for detailed investigations in the qualification of conventional workflow technology for the evolving application domain of e-Science. This chapter discusses the requirements on scientific workflows, the state of the art of scientific workflow management systems as well as the ability of conventional workflow technology to fulfill requirements of scientists and scientific applications. It becomes clear that the features of conventional workflows can be advantageous for scientists but also that thorough enhancements are needed. We therefore propose a conceptual architecture for scientific workflow management systems based on the business workflow technology as well as extensions of existing workflow concepts in order to improve the ability of established workflow technology to be applied in the scientific domain with focus on scientific simulations.

Abstract: This chapter discusses the evolution of standards for BPM. The focus is on technology-related standards, especially on standards for specifying process models. A discussion of the two fundamental approaches for modeling processes, graph-based and operator-based, supports a better understanding of the evolution of standards. For each standard discussed, we describe its core concepts and its impact on the evolution of standards. The corresponding influence on the overall architecture of BPM environments is worked out.

Fransoo and Haan, Aandré B. de (2010): An improved feasibility algorithm for the optimization of crude unloading, blending and charging in an oil refinery, in: S. Pierucci and G. Buzzi Ferraris (ed.): Proceedings of the 20th European Symposium on Computer Aided Process Engineering (Escape-20), 6-9 june 2010, Ischia, Naples, Italy, Elsevier: Netherlands, 1-6.
Abstract: Historically, the scheduling of crude oil unloading, blending and charging in an oil refinery has been done manually by a scheduler. This is a very time consuming process and often the manual scheduler will not find the optimal schedule. Systematic optimization could dramatically improve the quality of the schedules.

Abstract: Planning and scheduling play an important role in performance enhancement in any operation. This has probably been best recognized in industry, where a wide range of software applications have been developed to support decision makers with decisions such as machine scheduling, forecasting, inventory control, and sales & operations planning.

Abstract: Business capabilities represent potentials of an organisation to reach a specific goal or outcome. Business capabilities abstract from processes, resources and people that are required to provide the potential and are connected with a role model of provider and customer, both, internally and externally to an organisation. While related work provides fundamental concepts and usage descriptions of the business capability approach, so far the aspect of visualisation of business capabilities in the context of business analysis was only rudimentary addressed. In this paper, a three-dimensional business capability visualisation metaphor for business analyses is outlined which supports the visualisation of business capabilities and their qualifying dimensions but also the representation of their complex multi-dimensional interrelations.
Karastoyanova, Dimka and Frank Leymann (2010): Making Scientific Applications on the Grid Reliable Through Flexibility Approaches Borrowed from Service Compositions, in: Antonopoulos, Nick, Georgios Exarchakos, Maozhen Li and Antonio Liotta (ed.): Handbook of Research on P2P and Grid Systems for Service-Oriented Computing, IGI Global, 635-656.
Abstract: The current trend in Service Oriented Computing (SOC) is to enable support for new delivery models of software and applications. These endeavours impose requirements on the resources and services used, on the way applications are created and on the QoS characteristics of the applications and the supporting infrastructure. Scientific applications on the other hand require improved robustness and reliability of the supporting Grid infrastructures where resources appear and disappear constantly. Enabling business model like Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and guaranteeing reliability of Grid infrastructures are requirements that both business and scientific application nowadays impose. The convergence of existing approaches from SOC and Grid Computing is therefore an obvious need. In this work we give an overview of the state-of-the-art of the overlapping research done in the area of SOC and Grid computing with respect to meeting the requirements of the applications in these two areas. We show that the requirements of business applications that already exploit service-oriented architectures (SOA) and the scientific application utilizing Grid infrastructures overlap. Due to the limited extent of cooperation between the two research communities the research results are either overlapping or diverging in spite of the similarities in requirements. Notably, some of the techniques developed in each area are needed but still missing in the other area and vice versa. We argue therefore that in order to enable an enterprise-strength service-oriented infrastructure one needs to combine and leverage the existing Grid and Service middleware in terms of architectures and implementations. We call such an infrastructure the Business Grid. Based on the Business Grid vision we focus in this work on presenting how reliability and robustness of the Business Grid can be improved by employing approaches for flexibility of service compositions. An overview and assessment of these approaches are presented together with recommendations for use. Based on the assumption that Grid services are Web services, these approaches can be utilized to improve the reliability of the scientific applications thus drawing on the advantages flexible workflows provide. This way we improve the robustness of scientific applications by making them flexible and hence improve the features of business applications that employ Grid resources and Grid service compositions to realize the SaaS, IaaS etc. delivery models.
