121. A Meta-metadata Ontology Based on ebRIM Specification

ICIST 2015 Proceedings Vol.1, 241-246
Cverdelj-Fogaraši Igor, Sladić Goran, Gostojić Stevan, Segedinac Milan, Milosavljević Branko
Abstract: This paper describes an approach for enabling unified, document type independent semantic web-based reasoning over various metadata sources in a document management system. A comprehensive, yet concise nondomain- specific metadata ontology influenced by ebXML RegRep standard is proposed to serve as a semantic basis for other domain-specific metadata ontologies to be mapped. To overcome disparities between non-domain-specific and domain-specific metadata ontologies, SWRL rules are combined with OWL knowledge base, thus enabling comprehensive semantic web-based reasoning using an extended set of OWL axioms. Dublin Core metadata ontology is used as a case study of this research.

122. New Approach to Development of Supply Chain Management Information Systems through Software Factories

ICIST 2015 Proceedings Vol.1, 247-256
Stefanović Nenad, Milošević Danijela
Abstract: Information systems (IS) has been a critical component of enterprises for decades. However, development of information systems is usually very timeconsuming, manual, error-prone and expensive. The pressure for delivery of quality enterprise information systems has been increased with more global and competitive business environment. Organizations now compete as parts of supply chains, which poses new challenges for information systems development and integration. This requires a radical and new approach to IS development. In this paper, we introduce a new methodology for development of supply chain management information systems based on the concepts of the software factories. This methodology integrates model-driven development, modular and reusable software assets, and agile development practices. In order to demonstrate applicability and effectiveness of the approach, we present the model of the supply chain intelligence software factory which offers collaborative, accelerated and automated development of supply chain business intelligence solutions.

123. Prototype of a Framework for Ontology-aided semantic conflict resolution in enterprise integration

ICIST 2015 Proceedings Vol.1, 257-260
Vuković Željko, Milanović Nikola, Bauhoff Gregor
Abstract: Enterprise integration carries the need for resolution of various semantic conflicts. These conflicts come in many forms and each of those may appear in a different context. Conflict detection and resolution can be made easier if a semantic description of the involved systems is available. We have developed a prototype, based on existing software - Talend Open Studio ESB, for a framework where a user may attach an ontology to interface elements and have those interfaces mapped automatically. We present how this prototype was tested on a scenario for which a solution was previously developed manually at Model Labs GmbH/PI Informatik GmbH, Berlin.

Abstract: For development of the intelligent airport energy management system, a comprehensive airport data model is required to describe all static knowledge relevant for the airport energy management, enabling the integration and interoperability of different technical systems. One way of providing such comprehensive airport data model is based on the ontology modelling paradigm. Having in mind that airports are rather complex infrastructures with numerous, heterogeneous devices coming from different vendors, and therefore characterized with the large quantities of the static data, it is important to choose a suitable approach for ontology modelling. This paper presents one of the possible approaches to the airport ontology modelling and population which combines three different, but yet complementary methods: LODRefine tool, SPIN mapping and SPARQL Update queries. The flexibility of the proposed approach was seen in possibility to instantiate any airport infrastructure of the given complexity. The input for population of the airport ontology model was extracted from the various data sources such as data point lists, technical sheets, audits, interviews, questionnaire etc. Finally, as a test-bed platform for the ontology population, two specific airport infrastructures were chosen, Malpensa airport in Milan and Fiumicino airport in Rome.

Molnar Robert, Gostojić Stevan, Savić Goran, Sladić Goran, Konjović Zora
Abstract: This paper introduces a conceptualization of the document management domain that is serving as a foundation for a semantically-driven document management system. The conceptualization is based on the ISO 82045 family of standards for document management and is specified in OWL. Legislative documents were used as a case study and a proof of concept of the proposed conceptualization.

Abstract: Model-Driven Development (MDD) is a software development paradigm that emphasizes the importance of using models during the entire software development process, models with different levels of abstraction. In our SilabMDD approach, use cases models allow to define user and software requirements. These models are specified in the SilabReq language which is implemented inside JetBrains Meta Programming System (MPS) and can be used as plug-in for IntelliJ IDEA or for the MPS tools.

127. Service Networks Monitoring for better Quality of Service

ICIST 2015 Proceedings Vol.1, 278-283
Masood Tehreem, Bonner Cherifi Chantal, Moalla Néjib
Abstract: Today, the deployment of Web services in many enterprise applications has gained much attention. Service network inhibits certain common properties as they arise spontaneously and are subject to high fluctuation. The objective of consumer is to compose services for stable business processes in coherence with their legacy system capabilities and with better quality of services. For this purpose we have proposed a dynamic decision model that integrates several performance metrics and attributes to monitor the performance of service oriented systems in order to ensure their sustainability. Based on the available metrics, we have identified performance metrics criteria and classified into categories like time based QoS, size based QoS, combined QoS and estimated attributes. Then we have designed service network monitoring ontology (SNM). Our decision model will take user query and SNM as input, measures the performance capabilities and suggests some new performance configurations like selected service is not available, physical resource is not available and no maintenance will be available for the selected service for composition.
Abstract: Financial statements audit process is a key business process of each audit firm. In order to improve the business performances, audit firm should develop an adequate system of audit process performance measurement. In the first part, this paper defines performance measures for audit financial statements process, indicate to the problems and possible solution in order to create an adequate performance measurement system for audit process. The assumption of development an adequate system for measuring performance of audit process is the application of business process management concept into audit firm and development business process management software (BPMS) for the audit financial statement process. Furthermore, this paper presents the architecture of performance measurement system for audit process based on ODBC, MS Excel and BPMS. This kind of performance measurement system of audit process provides adequate and reliable information to managers for decisions making.

ICIST 2015 Proceedings Vol.1, 301-306
Mettouris Christos, Maratou Vicky, Vučković Divna, Papadopoulos George A., Xenos Michalis
Abstract: Living in the digital era, computers and the Internet became important tools used by people to support significant parts of their everyday life such as work, education, socializing, entertainment, communication, etc. However, there are certain risks involved in using ICT technologies, and thus all ICT users should be aware of the basic principles of information security and data protection. No matter how much expertise is put into securing information assets and networks (e.g. firewalls, encryption) the human factor always remains a vulnerability. Our vision is to aid towards the development of information security awareness culture by using a 3D Virtual World Learning Environment that will simulate real-life security threat scenarios, examples and counterexamples in a way that different groups of users will experience the risks and combine critical skills, knowledge and collaboration to overcome them, without exposing their organization to real risk. In this paper we provide the results of the end user requirements collection and analysis in order to define and develop the specifications of the aforementioned 3D Virtual World Learning Environment and the specifications of the in-world activities.

133. A Flexible, Process-Aware Contract Management System

ICIST 2015 Proceedings Vol.1, 313-318
Zarić Miroslav, Miškov Zoran, Sladić Goran
Abstract: this paper presents an open source based, general purpose contract management system. Contract management systems are becoming increasingly important component of business application landscape, aimed at improving the management of complete contract lifecycle. Contract management systems may be viewed as specialized document management systems (DMS). Although such systems can exist and be functional without implemented business workflow, for contract management this process perspective is quite important in order to have timeefficient, yet reliable contract handling. Hence, most of the contract management systems tend to deploy, or even impose, some business workflow. The system described in this paper is developing around an open source business process management system at its core, allowing for flexible contracts management workflows, and creating an extensible platform for customization to different needs.
Abstract: For centuries Bosnia and Herzegovina has been a country where East meets the West. Therefore it is very rich with remains of various cultures, nations and religions.
