Manufacturing companies more and more face the challenge of ensuring sustainable production. In particular, they continuously need to report sustainability data about their products and manufacturing processes that is categorized by various sustainability indicators. However, in a supply chain, such data collection also involves the companies suppliers. Thus, companies must issue cross-organizational data collection processes with potentially high numbers of responders. Due to the heterogeneity in a supply chain and the necessary involvement of services from external sustainability service providers, such processes are often long-running and error-prone. In response to that, we propose an approach for automatically and contextually assembling the required activities and services and managing them by an explicitly specified and enacted process.
