Abstract: The automation of inter-organizational processes requires legal and technical agreements between the participating business partners. In a technical sense a twofold agreement is necessary between business partners. First of all, business partners must agree on a common process choreography, unambiguously defining the exact exchange order of business documents in an inter-organizational business process. Consequently, business partners must agree on the structure of the exchanged business information as well. This book focuses on the definition of business documents for inter-organizational business processes and on the integration of business document models into business process choreography models. Thereby, we cover state-of-the-art in business document modeling by providing a business document survey, based on standard clusters. Consequently, we introduce the two main business document paradigms: top-down standards and bottom-up standards. This book is based on UN/CEFACT’s Core Components Technical Specification 3.0 and its related standards such as the UML Profile for Core Components 3.0 and UN/CEFACT’s Modeling Methodology 2.0.

Business-to-business (B2B) electronic commerce builds upon inter-organizational business processes that cross the borders of enterprises. Their design and implementation presupposes a different approach than intra-organizational processes do. Experience shows that bottom-up approaches starting from the IT layer of a single enterprise - expecting that all other business partners adjust to it - do not work out. Instead, a prolific B2B design approach must consider three layers in a top-down manner: Firstly, the economic perspective identifies the players and their value exchanges within a business network resulting in a business model. Secondly, business collaboration models specify the choreography of inter-organizational business processes in accordance with the business model. Finally, the business collaboration models are transformed to deployment artifacts to be interpreted by IT systems. In this PhD thesis, we propose a design approach for B2B integration based on the Unified Modeling Language (UML) considering all three layers.
