Semi-automatic Dependency Model Creation based on Process Descriptions and SLAs

Matthias Winkler, Thomas Springer, Edmundo David Trigos, Alexander Schill

Abstract

In complex service-oriented business processes the composed services depend on other services to contribute to the common goal. These dependencies have to be considered when service compositions should be changed. Information about dependencies is only implicitly available from service level agreements and process descriptions. In this paper we present a semi-automatic approach to analyze service dependencies and capture information about them explicitly in a dependency model. Furthermore, we describe a system architecture which covers the whole process of dependency analysis, dependency model creation and provisioning. It has been implemented based on a healthcare scenario.
