This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Ontology for goal management of virtual enterprises ' Partner selection is an important and complex decision problem for virtual enterprises (VEs). In this paper, we present a goal ontology for partner selection in a VE, and provide self-contained computing theory and a problem solving meta-model to manage and analyze VE goals. The paper focuses on the concept, attributes and constraints of goal ontology, decomposition relationship and redundancy of the goal system, and changeability and consistency of constraints.
