In this modern era, organisations have to work in coordination with
many other organisations in order to succeed in business. Interacting organisations
can only proceed in business if they have compatible workflows. This paper proposes
a framework to automatically generate compatible workflows for multiple
interacting organisations from their process definitions and service descriptions.
Existing systems can reconcile existing workflows only, and cannot generate
compatible workflows for multiple organisations automatically. The proposed
system is different from existing systems since it targets workflow collaboration
by generating workflows automatically. This allows the organisations to save the
time that would otherwise be spent in modelling workflows and making them
compatible with the workflows of interacting organisations.
