ABSTRACT Inter-organizational controls are mechanisms used to ensure and monitor that networked enterprises do not commit a fraud and behave as agreed. Many of such controls have, apart from thei r control purpose, an inherent economic value component. This feature requires controls to pop-up into business value models, stating how actors crea te, trade and consume objects of economic value. In this paper, we provid e guidelines that can be used to decide whether organizational controls should be part of a value model or not. We demonstrate these guidelines by a case stud y on the Letter of Credit procedure.

    ABSTRACT: Information flow between organizations has increased tremendously in recent years, for example in information federations of closely cooperating partners in a value chain. With this intensified exchange, information security becomes a major issue. In particular, coordinated access control policies must be derived by multiple organizations in a systematic fashion. However, current access-control modeling methodologies do not sufficiently address interorganizational information flow. In order to close this gap, we provide a methodology for engineering access control policies between multiple organizations, which is motivated and exemplified by a case study on information federation in the industrial service sector. Furthermore, we present a tool-supported approach for semi-automatic generation of interorganizational role-based access control policies derived from graphical business process models.

    ABSTRACT: While exploring value webs -cooperating enterprises- it is common to view such webs from multiple perspectives: (1) the business value perspective, (2) the business process perspective, and (3) the information system perspective. The value perspective explains why a web can exist from a commercial perspective, whereas the process perspective shows the interacting processes of enterprises and the IT perspectives shows the supporting IT architecture. These perspectives each take a different view on the same phe- nomenon: the value web. Because the phenomenon is for each viewpoint the same the perspectives need to be consis- tent. This paper introduces an approach to arrive at a busi- ness process model of a value web that is consistent with a business value model of the same value web. We propose a step-wise approach that starts with considering the inde- pendent transfer of ownership right of a value object and the actual object itself, and finally considers time ordering of these transfers. We illustrate our approach using an in- dustrial strength case study in the aviation sector.

    ABSTRACT: We propose a framework for the design and implementation of service systems, especially to design controls for long-term sustainable value co-creation. The framework is based on the software support tool e3-control. To illustrate the framework we use a large-scale case study, the Beer Living Lab, for simplification of customs procedures in international trade. The BeerLL shows how value co-creation can be achieved by reduction of administrative burden in international beer export due to electronic customs. Participants in the BeerLL are Heineken, IBM and Dutch Tax & Customs. KeywordsService science-service systems-value co-creation-service innovation lifecycle-e3-control-e3-value
