Establishing multi-lateral collaborations based on local workflows without having a global workflow is complicated, because the set of requirements used for the searching and matchmaking of trading partners is underspecified. The issue is to consider inter-dependencies of trading partners within a local workflow on the one hand side and between services on the other hand side. Within this paper, we suggest to develop an abstract model for establishing multilateral collaborations and propose a classification schema based on this model. The classification later on can be used to focus on particular aspects of the problem space and to develop solutions for different clusters within the problem domain.
