An i* based Approach to Support Strategic Decision in Virtual Enterprise

Clement Cherrey, Yan Liu

Abstract

Virtual Enterprise is becoming remarkable as the business environment for enterprise is more and more dynamic. Existing approaches for describing and designing structure for those collaborations adopt Goal oriented approach but tend to focus on functional goal for the system supplemented by an examination of quality constraints. In trying to get a complete knowledge of the way to structure and organize the Virtual Enterprise it is also necessary to have an understanding of the specific expectation, intent, and concerns of the different partner involved in the Virtual Enterprise design process. This paper presents an Agent and Goal oriented approach, iStarVE, taking i* framework as a basis, to model and evaluate the different views of actors on the Virtual Enterprise and their potential impact on the design of its internal structure.
