In the context of current day collaborative business processes, seamlessly integrating the applications residing in different enterprises becomes necessary. Process centered BPM provides the capability for business partners to carry out such processes by providing a platform for cross enterprise applications to take part in the process. However, current business processes management systems based on services cannot composite services automatically in order to meet user's requirements and lack the ability of dynamically configuration of services and resources. Roughly, existing methods can be classified into run-time binding based on task decomposition and automatic composition based on bottom-up method, but the former method needs decomposition of complex processes in advance while the later method is more complex. In addition, both methods are not goal-oriented. This paper introduces a stratified grid concept, and based on its characteristics, proposes a goal-oriented business processes management system. The method can search business processes, optimize the composite processes and configure resources in distributed stratified grid environment based on requirements and goals of users. Especially, the method can provide the user best global services and simplify the design of business process.
