Distributed component-based services and semantic web services are promising technologies for next generation inter-enterprise integration. The dynamic nature of this domain presents a complex problem for potential software agent-based approaches that support this cross-organizational integration. Currently, there are few studies that measure the impact of the dynamic environmental effects on service composition. On an on-going basis, composite services or workflow processes of web services may be constantly changing in terms of responsiveness of services, accessibility of services and their meta-information, business process schema changes, etc. This paper describes an approach, model, and supporting software toward the efficient formation of agent teams and interaction protocols for business process orchestration in response to certain environmental conditions.
