Abstract

In this paper we develop an adequate definition for Process Interoperability (PI) and we show how PI can help SMEs to conduct their business. Further, we derive the requirements for an interoperability solution tailored for SMEs. Finally, we introduce an interoperability approach in the context of the European Project "Commius", which enables SMEs to collaborate easily on the level of PI using simple email communication.
