An algorithm is being developed for this situation, that incorporates both sides' interests by first taking the customers restrictions, and then finding the highest preferred solution for the service provider within these limits. This is not done in a setting of competing agents each solving his local problem [1], but in a single composite problem that is solved by the virtual enterprise using the algorithm presented in this paper. The research described in this paper is part of the MOVE (Management and Optimization of Business Processes in Virtual Enterprises) Project of the Electronic Commerce Competence Center in Aust...
