The research project ArKoS deals with the development of an architecture for the management of collaborative scenarios consisting of methods, a tool support and an integration platform.
The architecture is used for the integrated support of cooperation- and coordination-intense cross-enterprise business processes. To achieve this aim existing concepts, modeling methods and tools are tested for their practicability. These are to expand in accordance to the requirements and to redesign if required. The industry-indifferent framework provides a generic solution concept which is transferred subsequently into an industry-specific reference model for the building industry.
