Negotiating with suppliers and with customers is a key part of supply chain management. However, with recent technological advances, the mechanisms available to carry out such activities have become increasingly sophisticated, and the environment in which these activities take place has become highly dynamic. As a consequence, the overall planning of these complex trades, and the coordination of the various component activities, need to be carefully considered. In this setting, it is crucial that the intended behaviour, and through that, the desired outcomes, of these composite trading activities be expressed in a suitably precise manner. Using an approach based on the generation of negotiation plans, this paper describes (i) an approach to the specification of such complex activities, and (ii) a corresponding execution model. The proposal is illustrated and validated by means of a scenario taken from a recent trading agent competition.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
