Abstract

We describe an approach to building a highly configurable, semi-autonomous agent that can support users playing a variety of roles in a supply-chain trading environment. The agent's decision processes are composed of networks of simple services that are described using an OWL ontology. The ontology describes both the abstract data structures that are produced and consumed by individual services, as well as the business meaning of these data elements. This approach supports goal-directed composition of services in order to generate performance dashboards, as well as direct injection of user input at arbitrary points in the network.
