Potential for Improving Decision Support Catalysed by Semantic Interoperability Between Systems
Advances in Supply Chain Management and Decision Support Systems
MetadataShow full item record
Convergence of systems and intelligent automation may augment the ability of supply chain operations or healthcare networks to rapidly adapt to changes or respond, with minimal human intervention, under ideal conditions. Communities are emerging as loose federations or organization of networks that may evolve to act as infomediaries. These changes, albeit sluggish, are likely to impact process knowledge and in turn may be stimulated or inhibited by the availability or lack of process interoperability, respectively. Understanding of processes between systems will determine operational efficiencies. Can the semantic web help?
Convergence and maturity of research offers the potential for a paradigm shift in interoperability. It may evolve hand-in-hand with [a] the gradual adoption of the semantic web [b] concomitant development of ontological frameworks, [c] increase in use of multi-agent systems and [d] advent of ubiquitous computing enabling near real-time access to identification of objects and analytics.
