@Article{Felicia 2017, AUTHOR = {Hotie, Felicia and Gordijn, Jaap}, TITLE = {Value-based Process Model Design}, YEAR = {2017}, JOURNAL = {Business & Information Systems Engineering}, PAGES = {1-17}, URL = {http://rdcu.be/wsJE }, PDF = {http://research.e3value.com/docs/bibtex/pdf/HotieGordijn2017Final.pdf}, ABSTRACT = {Networked service value constellations, consisting of enterprises and customers working together to jointly provide a commercial service, can be analysed from diff erent modeling perspectives. Two of such perspectives are (1) the value perspective and (2) the process perspective. Value models, describing the value perspective, indicate which economically valuable service outcomes are exchanged between the involved actors. However, a value model only shows what is exchanged of economic value, but not how this should be accomplished. Therefore, to understand a service well, a process model has to be designed also, which shows the actual tasks to be performed by these actors as well as the time ordering of these tasks. A key problem is then how to construct such a process model, given an earlier designed value model. As the process model should put the value model into operation, there exists a clear relationship between both models. Previous work investigated this problem to a certain extent, but a well integrated, and easy to use method is currently lacking. This paper proposes a step-wise method to design a process model for networked value constellations, given an earlier developed value model. The aim of this method is to support practitioners during the design of a process model; as a result, the proposed way of working should tractable, well teachable, and easy to use, thereby following the same philosophy as with the e3value methodology, which we use to model value perspective of networked value constellations. In addition to the step-wise method itself, the value of this paper is also in the use of the method to explore services related to Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) clearing.}, KEYWORDS = {E3, E3process, E3value, Selected, Top} }

We present a requirements engineering method for understanding control problems and designing solutions, based on an economic value perspective. The methodology employs a library of so-called control patterns, inspired by design patterns in software engineering. A control pattern is a generic solution for a common control problem. The usefulness and adequacy of the control patterns is demonstrated by a case study of the governance and control mechanisms of the Dutch public health insurance network for exceptional medical expenses (AWBZ).}, KEYWORDS = {E3control, Top} }

To explore such opportunistic behavior, and to design solutions to mitigate it, we propose the e3control approach. This approach takes the valuable objects, which are exchanged between enterprises, as a point of departure, and proposes a control patterns library to find solutions for various types of opportunistic behavior in network organizations. The practical use of the patterns is illustrated by a case study in the field of renewable electricity supply in UK.}, KEYWORDS = {E3control, E3valuePop, Selected, Top} }

Increasingly, these e-services are offered as a multi-supplier bundle of elementary services. How to automatically compose these e-service bundles is considered as a key problem. Part of the composition process is to elicit the customer need for an e-service bundle, and to facilitate this elicitation process by a web-enabled software component. To this end, we need a computer-processable theory, called an ontology, which is able to represent customer needs, and also facilitates computer-supported elicitation of needs. In this paper, we propose the e3service ontology that does just that. The ontology represents needs, wants, demands, benefits, and related constructs, to build a customer-oriented catalogue of customer needs for e-services, which in turn can be used during the need-elicitation process for a specific customer. We show how the e3service ontology works in practice, by using a case study carried out in the field about postal services.}, KEYWORDS = {E3service, Selected, Top, VITAL} }

The value web perspective models the creation, distribution, and consumption of goods or services of economic value in a network of multiple enterprises and end-consumers. The goal of the methodology is to create a shared understanding of a business model for all actors involved, and to assess the potential profitability. The trust perspective describes how value webs can be expanded with trustworthy control procedures thus enhancing confidence of actors in each other to enable trading. We present a first outline of a formal theory to design trustworthy control procedures in the setting of the e3value methodology.}, KEYWORDS = {E3control, E3value, Selected, Top} }

Sharpe}, ABSTRACT = {In network organisations and electronic commerce control mechanisms to guarantee inter-organisational contract compliance are important tools to enhance trust in a fair business transaction. We propose the e3-value/control design methodology for designing controls for network organisations. The e3-value/control design methodology is an extension of the e3-value design methodology for business models, which is focussed on modelling economic value exchanges between the organizations of a network, rather than operational processes between them. We argue that a methodology for designing control mechanisms should include three steps: (1) the design of an inter-organisational value exchange model of a network, (2) the analysis of inter-organisational control problems within the network, i.e. the analysis of possible violations of contractual obligations related to the value model, and (3) the design of control mechanisms to detect or prevent such control problems. We illustrate the usability of the e3-value/control design methodology in a case from the electricity industry.}, KEYWORDS = {E3control, Top} }

We propose a interdisciplinary approach, e3-value , to explore an innovative e-commerce idea with the aim to understand such an idea thoroughly and to evaluate it for potential profitability. Our methodology exploits a requirements engineeringâ??s way of working, but employs concepts and terminology from business science, marketing and axiology. It shows how to model business requirements and improve business-IT alignment, in sophisticated multi-actor value constellations that are common in electronic commerce. In addition to the e3-value approach methodology, we also present the action research-based development of our methodology, by using one of the longitudinal projects we carried out in the field of online news article provisioning.}, KEYWORDS = {E3value, Selected, Top} }
