A chemical process development case study as a source of requirements for the GOLD project

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Adrian Conlin, Dr Hugo Hiden



This paper outlines a case study of an actual chemical development project run in collaboration with a number of chemical companies. A Virtual Organisation (VO) approach was adopted throughout the project as the necessary skills were not available in either the initiating company or a single contractor. The project has been used in the definition, development and deployment of the GOLD Project Middleware. The case study illustrates the need for a flexible, infrastructural approach as this provides a means of supporting the variety of abstractions needed for highly dynamic VOs such as roles, resources and tasks.
